Letter: It’s up to council to make Belli’s dreams a reality

A big man with big dreams for Sudbury, Fabio Belli will certainly be missed. I met Fabio many years back when doing research for a Chamber of Commerce project. He impressed me then, and later I learned through my son, who worked with him on soccer league activities, just how committed he was to all sports in the community.

He realized the value of business development for the community and for social needs, as well.

Fabio took a genuine interest in his ward and became involved in grassroots concerns. He worked to form the Community Action Network and develop local projects.

He also supported our CAN Minnow Lake Dog Park.

But Fabio also had a global approach and realized that throughout the entire city quality of life issues were becoming increasingly important.

In particular, he was concerned about active transportation issues and the accessibility of safe access to our roads and streets for all users.

Myself and others who have for years been advocating for a more inclusive transportation policy and implementation were encouraged by the increasingly active role being taken by Fabio and by fellow councillor Joe Cimino, helping to make Sudbury a more liveable city through mobility for all citizens. We hope that all councillors will in Fabio’s memory help to carry on to promote his endeavors and dreams in this area.

John Lindsay
Chair, Minnow Lake CAN
