Thanks Kayleigh for and awesome badge!

26 Days of Christmas

26, Christmas on Main StreetWell you heard about it first here:  26 Days of Christmas.  I’m looking for help in coming up with ideas for how Cityview can bless Main Street / Riley Park for 26 consecutive days from Nov 29 to Dec 24.  Post your ideas here and let’s make this a Christmas like no other!

a profile of our community

For the past 15 years I have  thoroughly enjoy the Main St. corridor in Vancouver.  During that time Cityview has experienced the ebb and flow of urban change.  I think the best way to get to know a community is to go take a walk, have a coffee and a talk, get connected with a group of people and make a contribution that improves life for others.  Having said that though, blocktalk.ca has applied data provided by the Canada Census and analysed by Environics, to create community profiles for Vancouver.  Blocktalk.ca is intended to be a tool for prospective home-buyers.  Check us out.  Cityivew is located at 4370 Sophia St.

got walkability?

If any of you actually lived in the Cityview building, which I am glad to say none of you do, you would have a great walkability score.  Cityview, at 4370 Sophia St., has a walkability score of 90!  Check out your own score at www.walkscore.com.   Cityview is both a community and a regional congregation.  Our people walk, bike, transit, and drive to go to and from our gatherings.  I am so glad that the Main Street corridor is thriving!

the drift, 2009

Attention local artists and friends of art:  The Drift Society has announced the next dates for the 2009 Arts on Main St. adventure!  Saturday October 3 and Sunday October 4.  Discover more details and how to be involved in the latest newsletter.  Last year I really enjoyed the venues and the art on Main St.  We turned it into a family outing and had a wonderful time.
