Note regarding the purpose and implementation of the workplan:

CPCA Co-Chairs and executive members are not expected to enforce the plan or carry out all identified tasks. Executive members are volunteers who have already taken on responsibilities related to their individual positions and interests. Implementation of some aspects of the plan will depend on availability and involvement of other community volunteers. The plan may help to guide recruitment of such volunteers and budget allocation. The plan is meant to be flexible. Any future endeavours that arise can be discussed, prioritized and carried out as volunteers come forward.

Agenda items for the executive only

6- CPCA budget items
7-City budget items
8- Review of city list of street renovations
9- Any other items (to be prioritized for discussion at future meetings)
