Ramsay has recently undergone a great deal of infill development to replace older homes. The result is a vibrant neighbourhood, which sports an eclectic variety of architectural styles. The Ramsay community association has been active in ensuring that such development is consistent with their community vision. The community association invites resident feedback, and held a contest that allowed residents to submit design ideas. The Ramsay community association also contains a Beautification committee, which is currently painting vibrant murals in the area. The neighbourhood is also working in cooperation with the city’s Forever Green tree planting program to fill the area with trees. A children’s garden is also in the works. In additions, Ramsay offers a number of special events for residents, including a “boot sale,” where residents sell used items in car trunks, a high tea, and an edible flower festival.
