Peter Bereczki “The Centre Ward Action Plan”

1) The Heritage District Designation

2) The Port Whitby Sustainability Plan


 I Care! That's why I am running.

Whitby’s downtown is the heart of the city, and we all need it for various reasons; our shops, our schools, our library, our businesses. It’s where some catch the bus, have a meal, get pampered, grab a pizza, get a hair cut, repair your car. It’s where our soldiers gather every Remembrance Day, and where our parades celebrate every holiday season.
      Our downtown should shine as a symbol of Whitby, but this has not been the case for at least fifteen years. Here is the sad reality of our downtown: Spray painted walls, broken windows, burglary, street fights, and a burned church. These are not isolated incidences, but instead a trend, one that needs to stop. Our downtown needs the attention it deserves, It is my opinion the Downtown Steering Committee is not in tune with the realities of downtown,  there are plans to deem over 400 buildings as part of a "heritage district" which will place strict regulations on peoples’ businesses and homes instead of revitalizing the downtown area.
      Our downtown can and must turn around, it should be a symbol of how wonderful our whole town of Whitby is.
 Once I'm elected your councilor's office will be where it should be: 111 Dundas St. West, in the heart of our town, making it easily accessible to all Centre Ward constituents.
       It is important to protect our heritage. The Centre Ward action plan includes preserving our heritage with the complete participation of the stake holders. We need to have it as a theme and not a law. We don't need a heritage distinct designation. This is just one of the reasons I am seeking your support in this important election.
