Far from a one-issue ward, however, residents here are also concerned with issues of public safety, flood mitigation, green spaces, and maintenance or upgrading of public infrastructure that in some cases dates back to the end of the Second World War. Communities include Oakridge, Cedarbrae, Braeside, Palliser, Pump Hill, Bayview, Southwood, Haysboro, Chinook Park, Kingsland, Kelvin Grove, Eagle Ridge, Mayfair, Bel-aire, Meadowlark Park, Windsor Park, Elboya, Britannia, Elbow Park, Altadore, Garrison Woods, North Glenmore Park, Garrison Green, Currie Barracks, Rutland Park, Lincoln Park, and Lakeview.
