By the Rothwell Heights Property Owners Association (RHPOA)

Spring 2017

Dear Resident,

The RHPOA Board would like to hear your views on continuing to have a community association in Rothwell Heights and what you feel it should be doing.

Our Community Association has been continuously staffed by resident volunteers for over 50 years. It is incorporated as a non-profit in Ontario. It is also a registered community association with the City, which means we are invited to comment on a variety of changes that may affect our neighbourhood, such as zoning, land use, and bylaw amendments.

We are asking one member of your household to complete the following short survey, so that the Association Board members can hear your views. We are asking for one response per household, and request your address for tracking purposes.   Survey responses will be treated confidentially by the Board, and will be shared only in aggregate through a newsletter and/or on the website.

We hope you will take a few minutes to participate. Your input will help guide the Association Board members in their 2017 decisions.

Thank you for your assistance.
 

Jane Brammer
On behalf of the Board, RHPOA
