Webinar for local government leaders
Back in House Webinar:
Why Local Governments are Bringing Services Home.
Our report “Back in House" directly tackles the myth that contracted out services cost less. In fact 80% of the returning services in the Canadian case studies examined in the report cited cost savings. It's part of a Canadian and an international trend that, to date, has received very little coverage.
Learn more about these findings in our webinar and get a few useful case studies in Canada and around the world under your belt.
The report findings will be presented by co-authors Keith Reynolds and Gaetan Royer and then we’ll open the floor to Q & A. Charley Beresford will facilitate the discussion.
Council approves Heritage Revitalization Agreement! Several community members and spoke in favour of saving three heritage homes and relocating them to a property at the corner of St. George and Douglas in Moody Centre.
Next steps include formalizing the subdivision into three lots, building new foundations for the houses and completing an authentic restoration before putting the three heritage homes on the market.
CityState is proud to play a role in exploring options to save this piece of the Tri-Cities' heritage. Ma Murray is a prominent Canadian whose homestead is worth preserving.
We met with Anmore Heritage Society volunteers, listened to their goals, took their concerns into consideration and created a preliminary Concept Plan. Globe & Mail's Kerry Gold did a great job capturing both the educational opportunities and the challenges ahead in this project.
