For the past several months, we have been honoured to serve as community representatives on the Mayor’s Standing Committee on Public Engagement.
As residents of the Township of Langley with a passion for public participation, we are pleased for the opportunity to help enhance two-way communication between the Township and residents during planning and development processes.
When it comes to development in our communities, we believe the Township has done a great job in engaging its citizens in some decision-making processes.
Some decision-making processes have shown there is room to learn and grow.
That is why it is so important that residents get involved in the upcoming Open Houses on Public Engagement, being held by the committee on Oct. 20, 22, and 24.
This is your opportunity to have your say. Tell us how you would like to be heard in regards to managing growth and developing neighbourhoods. How do you like to express your opinion? Do you like face-to-face interaction or prefer to engage digitally? What works for you?
Everyone has a different viewpoint, and the committee needs to hear from as many people as possible to reach the most effective conclusions.
Input collected from the open houses and other committee activities will be used to inform a recommendation to council on how to enhance public engagement during development and planning processes.
By dropping in and expressing your views, you can help shape the way the Township grows.
We look forward to hearing from you.
