Learn more about Brampton neighbourhood through walks, workshops and virtual tours this month.
The Nurturing Neighbourhoods Program is back with a goal to improve civic engagement, empower residents to play an active role in enhancing their neighbourhood, and connect them with resources.
The program includes neighbourhood walks, workshops, virtual tours, a neighbourhood survey, and an online mapping tool. All are free.
The walks and workshops will be in five neighbourhoods — Fletcher’s Meadow and Van Kirk, Lundy Village and Fletcher’s Creek, Bramalea G-Section, Castlemore Estates and Wildfield, and Sheridan.
There will be 10 virtual tours highlighting neighbourhood gems across Brampton.
The online mapping tool will allow residents to identify places they love, concerns, and changes they would like to see throughout the city.
The Nurturing Neighbourhoods Program is coming to Fletchers Meadow & Van Kirk on Tuesday, August 9! All events are FREE to the public!#NurturingNeighbourhoods is all about helping communities feel safe, healthy and happy.

Residents can participate in the online survey now. The city wants to understand the community’s neighbourhoods and how residents interact within them.
Also, Brampton residents can share a short video highlighting their favourite neighbourhood gems for a chance at winning prizes. The deadline for letting the city know your favourite local spots with a video is Aug. 14. Submit videos online at www.brampton.ca/communitysafety.
The Nurturing Neighbourhoods program was a response to Brampton 2040 Vision: Living the Mosaic’s Action Item #3-1: A Complete Neighbourhood Audit. A complete neighbourhood audit is a way of systematically updating and revitalizing neighbourhoods to ensure full provisions for comfortable and sustainable living.
