Ward 8 Update
October and November Newsletter

This month's newsletter provides an update on both October and November City Council meetings and a look ahead at budget deliberations, which begin on Monday, November 28, 2022. Topics of interest include transit, Downtown Event and Entertainment District, climate action updates and changes to City Council meeting schedules. 

I also want to take an opportunity to highlight the admission model changes at the Remai Modern. In October, admission is now by donation to the Remai Modern! This is due to a generous donation from the Frank and Ellen Remai Foundation. I hope you get a chance to head over to the space and check out the new atrium piece by Nick Cave. This piece will be unveiled formally next week.
