The CMPCA was founded in 2005 by a group of residents as a not-for-profit community association to foster a sense of community and help residents come together to discuss and take action on issues of concern in the area. Membership is free and open to all residents in the area. Officers and Management Committee members are elected annually at the AGM. To read about the CMPCA’s activities over the last few years, see our Management Committee’s annual reports.
