About SPRA

 

Settlers Park Residents Association (SPRA) was created on May 29 2012 as a community response to a threat of launching an aerobic bioreactor experiment in the German Mills Settlers Park. Within a month, SPRA mobilized hundreds of people in the community and around to oppose this project, collected over 600 signatures in the petition to stop the bioreactor proposal and gained overwhelming support of the Markham Council in the voting to stop bioreactor initiative once and forever – all 12 Councillors supported the community residents and said “No” to the bioreactor plans.

Since that time, SPRA has organized a number of community events and initiatives, including Park clean-ups, Thanksgiving Park walks, Community picnics, residents’ polls, supported Markham-wide Stormwater Flood Remediation initiative and Thornlea Revitalization plans, etc.

Currently SPRA is preparing for its 1st annual general meeting on May 23, 2013 and works on the new initiatives that could bring our community residents together and make our community life more interesting.
