“Safety in Parking” – Vote Today!

Aviva Community Fund Bow Cliff Seniors is proud to be participating in the Aviva Community Fund competition again this year. Our project – “Safety in Parking” – builds on two years of fundraising  toward a new and improved parking lot, including:

  • south side sidewalks (so seniors don’t have to walk behind parked cars)
  • centre walkway (allowing safe access to all parked cars)
  • speed bumps and barriers at ends of the lot
  • signs (speed limit, handicapped parking and information)
  • landscaped planters
  • security cameras
