As usual, Roger, your “Am I Wrong” column [Feb. 14 edition] made us think and want to make changes that will either kick start or end forever the constant discussions regarding our downtown.
You didn’t mention in your column the downtown survey that the Cosmos and I worked together on to receive input on our downtown, to learn what, how, why and where the residents would like to see as changes.
The Cosmos also brought in a speaker [Doug Griffiths, “13 Ways to Kill Your Community”, May 2018] to encourage these changes and to spark interest in some changes for the downtown. But since then, nothing has happened or been discussed.
I think we need to put together a committee to talk to residents and encourage dialogue and make changes directed by those who will shop, visit and patronize our downtown – the residents.
For as long as I can remember, the discussion for changes downtown has been going on and it always comes to an end without a conclusion. Let’s not end this discussion without a conclusion, let’s finish it and be done for now until time and changes dictate otherwise.
I’ll sit on the committee – who else interested? Give us a call 905-640-3966.
Re: From Dave’s Desk, Feb. 14 edition
Thank you, Cosmos, for printing a sizable column by the mayor reporting, in a non-partisan way, on key issues before council.
Other politicians speak of openness. This one does it, with your help.
I was recently sent from my doctor’s office to the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital for tests and assessment. While there, over the course of a few hours, several tests were done, read and evaluated. I was then discharged with a treatment plan.
Everyone I came into contact with, from nurses to doctors to interns to technicians were very courteous, helpful, proficient – and VERY professional.
We, who live in Uxbridge, are extremely fortunate to have such an excellent facility.
A grateful patient
