Our online survey is ready & waiting for you to express your preference re Bonnie Doon's new Streetlights, to be installed from 2015 through 2017. The choice of streetlights can affect our property values and our property taxes, so please complete the survey.

The French Quarter Farmers' Market is back for its second season! Located in La Cité Francophone, 8527 91 Street, the market is open Sundays from noon until 4 p.m.
As more vendors become available to join in the early weeks of spring, more varieties of fresh foods will be available.
Above its goal to represent its communities' and vendors' passion for food, this community market will do what it can to support local non-profit initiatives and culture promoting initiatives. Over the summer, limited numbers of non-food vendors will pop up now and then to represent charitable and not for profit efforts.
Young families can expect a comfortable atmosphere as always, removed from street traffic and with a beautiful green terrace, your new local market has balloon art and crayons coloring at the Kid's Corner next to the information tent. Free face painting will start in June.
There will be live music every week as well.
