The Community Dialogue was a process of ‘people talking to people’ about the future of their neighbourhoods, and issues related to housing choice and affordability. The Working Group asked questions and listened to what residents had to say about the issues and possible actions for addressing them. The newsletters are part of that dialogue process.
