MUSKOKA LAKES COUNCIL SEEKS COMMUNITY INPUT INTO STRATEGIC PLAN
Muskoka Lakes’ Council has initiated a strategic planning process and is encouraging input from the community to help shape the long-term vision for the Township. The planning process will provide many opportunities for residents (both year-round and seasonal) and the business community to share their ideas and let Council know what is important to them. The new strategic plan is scheduled to be finalized this spring and will establish key directions, goals and objectives for Council to focus on over the next term of office.
“Council wants to know what matters the most to the community - what is most important to residents and local businesses,” explains Township of Muskoka Lakes Mayor Don Furniss. “These priorities will start an important discussion of where we are today, and where we want to go in the future. “
A community survey has been launched to collect community input and will remain open until the end of February 2015. The community survey is available online here.
Hard copies of the survey are also available. Please contact the Township office at (705) 765-3156 for more information or to inquire about obtaining and submitting a print version of the survey.
Residents are also encouraged to join the discussion through Community Input Sessions. A session will be held in each Ward. In addition, a special session will be held in the GTA to make the planning process more accessible for seasonal residents. The sessions are scheduled for:
Ward A Torrance Community Centre - Saturday, February 14, 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Ward B Windermere Community Centre - Tuesday, February 5, 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Ward C Port Carling Community Centre - Wednesday, February 4, 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
GTA Session: Hilton Garden Inn Toronto/Vaughan – Monday, February 9, 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. 3201 Highway 7, Vaughan, On
A draft plan based on community input will be made available for comments from the public prior to being finalized.
