The importance of Public Participation

Public participation plays an important role in the process. An interactive public process has been developed to solicit ideas and solutions. The entire community is encouraged to participate in decisions about the areas the plan will focus on, such as neighborhoods, land use, pedestrian connectivity, community services and facilities, infrastructure and economic development.

A community forum will be held this fall that will offer opportunities to discuss one or more of these elements of interest. Attend them all or only those areas that interest you. These public forums will incorporate planning exercises, such as round-table discussions, mapping and visioning exercises, surveys, and poll-based data collection.

You can start doing your part by taking the online survey or through printed surveys also available from the township hall.
