Growing and Strengthening Community ties

Through our network of street captains, we try to reach out and welcome new residents with information about our community, services and local businesses. 

40 k/hr speed limit pilot: 

Responding to on-going community concerns with traffic safety we are working with the Town of Oakville and Halton Regional Police to develop an Oakville-wide template for reducing speeds and increasing safety in residential areas.

 

Link with the community:

There are many other events sponsored by local organizations such as the Kerr Street BIA and St. Aidan’s church, including Christmas Tree Lighting and the Santa Claus parade. Find out about these events by signing up for our free e-mail updates. 

 

 

Executive Meeting Minutes & AGMs:

Our board meets once a month to discuss on-going topics, upcoming events, and meetings attended. 
You can find all meeting minutes here

 

In October each year we run an AGM for all neighbours to attend, we review such things as wildlife, traffic, etc. We have one person speak on a specific topic, the Mayor and our counselors give their remarks about things happening in West River as well. 
You can find these meeting minutes here

Liaison with local politicians and other resident associations: 

We attend monthly meetings with the Oakville Mayor and a number of other community groups to share information and discuss issues.  We are in regular communications with our two Oakville Councillors to discuss and deal with local concerns. WRRA is an active participant in WeLoveOakville, representing all of Oakville’s resident groups to share ideas and initiate projects involving Town-wide issues.

Communication Hub:
We are the voice for residents who need a platform to communicate their messages about the community if this is to help find a lost cat, wallet, or share details on local charity events being organized by residents. 

 

Community Outreach:

We advocate and support local charities, food banks, and businesses through our events. And we keep the safety of our residents a top priority, for example, during the pandemic we ran a campaign to match volunteers to the elderly who needed help with groceries and other essentials.
