SYLVIA PRANGER

1. Love for this community. Volunteering and serving in different capacities on boards and organizations.

3. Listening and talking with residents and organizations.

4. Some lands in the ALR have been designated as Residential Reserve ince 2001 and have withstood rigorous reviews and remain as such in the Official Community Plan. Previous councils have been very supportive of infilling in the community, particularly on Highway 9 and Morrow Road. When councils make decisions it isn’t based on what we as individuals want, but what we believe is in the long-term best interest for the community as a whole [and] what will keep us a thriving , healthy community.
