Georgina Wilcock, Area 9 Coordinator
Georgina has been a resident of DonMills for the last 13 years. She believes that mitigating actions will result in more community building.
For example building active transportation in the community cuts pollution with the added benefi ts of decreased childhood obesity, safer streets and increased community interactions. Georgina is a member of cycle 25, a bicycle advocacy group in ward 25.
Georgina is motivated to work with the DMRI to build a more sustainable community. She believes it is very important to counter the development of super sized houses on our streets and would like to see Don Mills declared a heritage neighbourhood. Aside from housing Georgina believes recreation is essential for all healthy communities; Hockey plays such an integral role in the lives of so many families. She thinks it is an urgent issue for the community of Don Mills to establish a hockey arena in central Don Mills.
Dorothy Pestell, Area 5 Coordinator
Dorothy has been a member of the DMRI executive committee for well over 15 years. Her interest in keeping abreast of developments in the community are very personal as she has lived in Don Mills since 1963, with the exception of a 6-year period where she was forced to live north of the 401 (oh the horror!!!) when the old Brydencourt apartments were torn down to make way for a new condominium development known as Village Mews.
Dorothy has seen Don Mills grow from its experimental beginnings as Canada's first planned community, to the vibrant neighbourhoods that exist today.
Dorothy is a realtor with Royal LePage Signature Realty, a Don Mills company owned by the Slightham family, who will, next year, celebrate 50 years in real estate, from house building, to buying and selling real estate, in this wonderful community.
