There were 163, a rough count showed 63 in favour and 100 against (39% v 61%). Note that the town hall was advertised as providing information and ensuring concerns had been addressed about various Durand projects (bike lanes, park renovation, heritage district as well as the reversions). I don't think most Duranders, apart from those residents on Duke and Bold upset about the reversions, thought this meeting could lead to any of these projects being rejected. ImAgine if the park renovation, partly financed by DNA fundraising and in the works since 2008, could be cancelled because a majority of those who turned up at the town hall thought it was not needed.

500 ward 2 residents voted in pb 2014, and the reversions were one of the successful projects. Farr was clearly disappointed that not more residents bothered to get involved even with $1miillion in funding, online voting and a flyer drop to all residents as well as ads in the spec and public displays of the projects. He suggested that some of the upset residents might consider getting involved this year (at least voting or even proposing and promoting projects).
