Lord Selkirk-West Kildonan Community Committee Roundup

June 16 meeting highlights

A Centennial kitchen program for kids got a big boost last week.

Boys and Girls Clubs of Winnipeg received a $20,000 community incentive grant from Coun. Mike Pagtakhan (Point Douglas) toward the cost of upgrading the kitchen at its Freight House Club (Door 4-200 Isabel St.).

Ron Brown, president and CEO of Boys and Girls Clubs of Winnipeg, told community committee that the money will enable Freight House to enhance its Kids in the Kitchen program and its food service at community events.

Brown said the upgraded kitchen will also be open to the community.

"The Canadian Muslim Women’s Institute occupies the second floor of our headquarters on Juno Street and we’ve talked to them about cooking classes," Brown said. "During the day when we’re not doing afterschool programming, that space is available and an enhanced kitchen would make it more viable."

Although the grant application was for $38,650, Brown told The Times the project had already received funding from The United Way of Winnipeg/Richardson Foundation ($35,000) and Kiwanis Club of Winnipeg Foundation ($4,250).

"This (community incentive grant) was an add-on. It just helped to enhance the project. We’ll proceed now," Brown said.

• Casa do Minho Portuguese Centre received a $500 grant, total, from Coun. Pagtakhan and Coun. Devi Sharma (Old Kildonan) to help with the cost of their recent Portugal Day celebration.

• Central Park Neighbourhood Association received a $100 grant from Coun. Pagtakhan to assist with the cost of its Canada Day celebration.

• Garden City Tennis Group received a $200 grant, total, from Coun. Sharma and Coun. Ross Eadie (Mynarski) to go toward an upcoming tennis tournament.

• North Point Douglas Women’s Centre received a $400 grant from Coun. Eadie to help with the cost of its Austin Street Festival, to be held Aug. 21.

• BEEP (Balanced Experiential Education Program) at Governor Semple School received a $314 grant from Coun. Eadie to assist with the cost of bus transportation for summer field trips.

• Leanne Seniuk, a representative of Stanley Knowles School’s parent advisory council, requested that committee consider a review of the 70-kilometre speed limit on Inkster Boulevard at King Edward Street and the installation of eastbound and westbound left turn arrows at the intersection of Inkster and King Edward.

Community committee recommended to the Standing Policy Committee on Infrastructure Renewal and Public Works that the Public Service be requested to undertake a traffic analysis and report back to community committee.
