What is For a Better Cambridge all about?
We have a few key concerns:
•the safety and security of residents in the downtown areas and surrounding neighbourhoods, school yards, and community parks
•the state of our downtown core, which could be cleaner, more vibrant, and more welcoming to residents and visitors
•appropriate support for the homeless, drug addicted, and those with mental health issues - while minimizing the impact on surrounding neighbourhoods and businesses
•an equitable distribution of support services across our community and the greater Waterloo region
