North Bay Civic League
Why North Bay Matters

I love living within walking distance of Lake Nipissing, downtown stores, churches , the library and city hall. Other areas of this city have equally attractive aspects. I wish we had a healthy urban forest, though,with lots of boulevard trees to create a leafy canopy on all our city streets. I want to do everything I can to enhance and protect a walkable, bikeable city of vibrant neighbourhoods, parks and playgrounds for every age.

North Bay became my family’s permanent home in 1981.  At that time I loved the small town feel, the downtown centre, waterways, paths and parks. I’d like to see more opportunities for social interaction and I think passive park areas can offer that.   Quality of life in my city is very important to me and I love the opportunity to be an active participant in its growth as a sustainable 21st Century community.
