Public Assembly & Forums
The process of organising public assemblies is key to their success; They are organized in partnership with local groups and organizations and with the support of the organizing committee, itself made up of residents and representatives from various community organizations.
As part of the Council's long tradition to mobilise residents around important issues in their community, the Council's staff organised several public assemblies, discussion groups and many public events, all in collaboration with community partners and residents. The issues discussed in public assemblies are determined by community demand and by the specific context that residents are facing.

NDG 2020 Public Assemblies are venues for discussion, reflection, debate and mobilization. Some Assemblies from this past year:
The Empress Cultural Centre / September 13, 2010
The public assembly organized on the subject of the Empress Cultural Centre is an excellent exam ple of concerted action between the NDG Community Council, the Empress Cultural Centre and the Renaissance Empress resident coalition. Our combined efforts resulted in the gathering of 80 part i - cipants including residents, elected officials and administrators.
Benny Farm / November 23, 2010
With the completion of the residential component of the redevelopment of the Benny Farm site, this public assembly provided an opportunity for exchange and reflection on the redevelopment process, the Community Council's role in community development at Benny Farm as well as future challenges that will be faced by residents on the site as further development unfolds.
