Hello UEL, UNA and UBC residents,
Here is my May newsletter. It is a little shorter this month, so either you are welcome, or my apologies (depending on how much you like to read this!).
Also, all resources are now available on my website for both of the recent engagement sessions (Creating Inclusive Communities, and TransLink’s Transport 2050 and Potential UBC SkyTrain Extension). You can find resources, audio recordings, and presentations on the Resources page of my website here: https://jenmccutcheon.wordpress.com/resources/
All the best,

I’ve now officially been the Metro Vancouver Director for Electoral Area A (and member of the Mayors’ Council for Regional Transportation) for two weeks, and I am happy to report that it has been an enriching experience thus far.

To find out more about what is going on at Metro Vancouver and Translink (though the Mayors’ Council on Regional Transportation), please click below for my first monthly newsletter. These newsletters focus both on regional issues, as well as those directly impacting the 98% of the Electoral Area A population who live in the UBC/UEL area. Stay tuned for my quarterly bulletin, which will focus more on issues relating to the more rural areas of Electoral Area A (as well as regionally significant items).
