Graffiti Busters

A few small incidents of graffiti have been noticed around the neighbourhood. Help keep our neighbourhood safe and looking great by reporting graffiti to the city of Kitchener's "Graffiti Busters."
All reported sites will be photographed for police monitoring before being removed. To report graffiti or get more information, go to http://www.kitchener.ca/graffiti_busters/graffiti_main.html or call 519-741-2320.

The faster graffiti is reported and removed, the less likely the site will be tagged again.

If you see graffiti vandalism in progress, call 911.

Festival of Neighbourhoods "Newcomers" Award

On October 25, 2009, the City of Kitchener held it's annual Festival of Neighbourhoods Finale at Kitchener City Hall. Thanks to the efforts of the new Social Committee and the board, Settler's Grove Community Association was entered into the awards selection for this year's Neighbourhood Garage Sale and Summer Family BBQ.

We are pleased to announce that Settler's Grove was selected to receive this year's Newcomer Award. We were entered into this draw for hosting a brand new event for our association in 2009. The prize consists of our association name going on a plaque at city hall, a cedar tree, a framed award and $200 to spend on our 2010 events.

The award will be on display at this year's Holiday Celebration event on November 20, 2009.
Come out to see the award, ask questions of our Social Committee and Board and get involved in your neighbourhood!
