Residents’ group elects new president

  • Print

There have been changes at the helm of a St. Boniface-based community organization.


Matt Allard was recently elected as the new president of the board of the Old St. Boniface Residents’ Association.


Allard replaces outgoing president Walter Kleinschmit, who served in the post for four years and will now focus on the development of a new housing corporation in the area. André Clement was elected vice-president.


"I look forward to working with (Walter) and representing the residents of St. Boniface to ensure their voices are heard," said Allard in a statement. "I will work with all stakeholders towards a community that is safer, has better recreational opportunities and improved infrastructure."


Kleinschmit added he will focus on working closely with stakeholders to bring new family-oriented housing to the area, noting a "significant need in the community."


The mandate of OSBRA is to promote the existing character of the community, the historical and cultural significance of the area and desirable change and development in the St. Boniface core area. This year marks the 35th year of continuous operation of the association, Allard said.
