The Town of Fort Erie wants to know how it’s doing and what issues are most important for residents.
The Town is in the process of developing its new Strategic Plan, which means residents, businesses and community partners are being asked to complete a survey to provide feedback that will help improve programs and services.
In a news release, Mayor Wayne Redekop said it’s important to be open to all feedback.
“Town Council is incredibly pleased with the on-going level of community interest and involvement in our numerous Town-appointed boards and committees. These surveys are an additional way we can involve residents and community partners by asking for their feedback and ideas regarding improving our programs, services and our community.”
Three surveys have been launched for the following groups: all residents of Fort Erie; community partners, which include community agencies, groups, services clubs, associations and government partners; businesses and business associations. The intent of the three different surveys is to capture “diverse perspectives across the community,” the news release said.
The surveys take about five to 10 minutes to complete and the hope is that they will generate ideas regarding community priorities and themes; feedback on current initiatives and priorities; insight into common municipal priorities for the next four years; an understanding of barriers and challenges facing the Town; emerging issues, ideas and opportunities for the Town and opportunities to engage the community to achieve the Town’s vision.
Online surveys will be available by visiting www.forterie.ca and clicking on the most relevant survey or by visiting Town Hall or Fort Erie library branches to complete an online or paper survey. The deadline for completing surveys is March 8 at 4:30 p.m.
All survey information will be summarized, by the Town’s consultant, and used by Town Council in upcoming strategic planning workshops to guide and inform the 2019-2022 Strategic Plan.
