Ward 5 Town Hall meeting to discuss Town and Gown relationships

Guelph, Ontario, November 9, 2017 – On November 23, Ward 5 Councillors Cathy Downer and Leanne Piper will host a Town Hall meeting to discuss Town and Gown relationships and Homecoming 2017. The guest speaker will be Kathryn Hofer, the University of Guelph’s Manager of Off Campus Living. There will also be a panel discussion with representatives from the University of Guelph’s Central Student Association, Guelph Police Service, City staff from the Bylaw and Zoning departments, and community members. All are welcome to attend.

“We are hosting this meeting because neighbourhoods in Ward 5 experienced major disruptions during Homecoming,” said Councillor Piper. Added Councillor Downer, “We know the University of Guelph and its students make tremendous contributions to our city, and it’s a small minority of students who create problems. But those few can have a huge impact. We invite everyone to come out and join the discussion.”
