The McAdam Beautification Committee would like to thank the community for their nominations for “Green Space” Naming project.  The citizens group reviewed all submissions, and through an open and fair voting process, narrowed the selection down to four names to be voted upon by the public.  Each name has historical value and meaning to McAdam.  They are, as follows, in no particular order:

  • McAdam Village Green
  • Royal Hotel Park
  • Whistle Stop Park
  • Railside Park

Voting opens, Tuesday, May 7th at 9am. A ballot filled out at the McAdam Village Office. Voting closes May 24th, at 4pm.

It has been noted that there were many candidates worthy of a “Memorial” or “Honourary”.   Due to this, the Beautification Committee is looking at future opportunities to recognize these deserving individuals.
