The City of Vaughan is marking an important milestone in 2016 – our 25th anniversary as a city. As we look to the exciting future of our growing City, I am inspired by the passion and energy that is evident everywhere in our community. We each have the opportunity to continue to do incredible things for our City and I am proud to call Vaughan my home.
Throughout the past 25 years, Vaughan has experienced significant transformational change. Our commitment to change is derived from the strength of our conviction that we can create a fulfilling future – one where the social, economic and cultural essence of our community will flourish, inspiring a truly remarkable renaissance of civic pride.
With major city-building initiatives underway, including the Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital, the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre and the Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension, we are turning our dreams into reality. You are the reason Vaughan is well on its way to becoming a world-class city. We are blessed with a dynamic and vibrant population that embodies the very best of global citizenship – speaking 99 languages and embracing diversity as a strength. More than 320,000 people, 10,000 businesses and thousands of organizations all focused on making a positive contribution to the well-being of our great community.
Vaughan’s 25th anniversary is a momentous occasion and we want the entire community to join in the celebration. As a resident of our city, you are invited to celebrate our successes, pay tribute to our heritage and look to the future with optimism. Like the vast majority of Vaughan residents, I believe that tomorrow can be better than today.
Together, we will take Vaughan to the next level and make this 25th anniversary the best year yet!
This is our city. Let’s celebrate it together.
Hon. Maurizio Bevilacqua, P.C.
