1) The next BCA (Blueridge Community Association) meeting will take place on Tuesday, March 24th at 7:00 pm. Note that the location has changed! In anticipation of a capacity crowd we are holding the meeting at Canlan Ice Sports (Intersection of Berkley and Mt.Seymour Parkway). The meeting starts at 7:00 pm sharp and the discussion concerns the Transportation and Transit Plebiscite (otherwise known as vote YES/NO for a 0.5% sales tax increase). The guest speaker is Mayor Richard Walton, the moderator is North Shore journalist Bob Mackin. Questions from audience members are welcome. There will also be a presentation regarding changes to bus service in Blueridge.
2) Blueridge Creek clean-up – seeking volunteers (with green thumbs). The next creek clean-up takes place at 9:00 am on Friday April 10th. Join your neighbours, DNV employees and Grade 4 students from Blueridge Elementary School at the intersection of Bronte Drive and Blueridge Creek for a morning of planting, weeding and general creek clean up. All are welcome and all tools will be provided (bring gardening gloves). Contact info [at] blueridgeca [dot] org for more info.

5) The BCA in partnership with the Electronics Recycling Association (ERA) will be hosting a Computer Electronics Recycling event on Saturday June 13th from 1 pm – 3 pm at Blueridge Elementary School.

6) Do you enjoy walking in the neighbourhood? We’re looking for volunteers to deliver the Blueridge Community Newsletter (the blue one that goes out to over 1400 homes three times a year). Each route is approximately 25 homes, and will take around an hour of your time.
