First of three public engagement meetings in Township draws 80 people

Mayor Jack Froese will host two more open houses this week — Thursday evening in Aldergrove and Saturday afternoon in Brookswood

  • Oct. 21, 2015 1:00 p.m.

About 80 people attended the first of three scheduled public engagement open houses, which was held on Tuesday night. Attendees went through several stations where they provided feedback by voting at boards, writing on a scrawl wall, participating in a dialogue circle, and filling out a feedback form.

Residents who did not attend last night’s event are encouraged to attend one of the upcoming open houses:

·   Thursday, Oct.  22, 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Main Hall of the Aldergrove Kinsmen Community Centre, 26770 29 Ave.

·   Saturday, Oct. 24, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the ABC Room of the George Preston Recreation Centre in Brookswood, 20699 42 Ave.

Input collected during the open houses will help the Committee make recommendations on improving how the Township engages community members during planning and development projects and processes.
