“We are embarking on an important strategic planning exercise, and input from the public is a key part of this exercise,” said Norm Levac, Chief Administrative Officer. “I would encourage residents to join us at this session and provide input on their concerns and priorities for the City.”
The session will be held from 3 pm to 7 pm in Salon B of the Cornwall Civic Complex, and all residents and community stakeholders are invited to attend and participate. It will be a roundtable session, and scribes will be on hand at each table to collect input from community members on what should be included in the City’s new Strategic Plan.
For those who wish to participate but are unable to attend the live session, there will be a survey available online at the City website (www.Cornwall.ca) and in hard copy at various City buildings. These completed surveys, along with the data collected at the Community Engagement Session, will be compiled and submitted to the City of Cornwall to be used in its strategic planning exercise. Additional information on the survey will be announced shortly.
In addition to the public input component, the strategic planning exercise will also consist of an internal survey of City employees and two strategic planning sessions with City Council on Saturday, June 1st and Thursday, June 6th. A final report is expected to be completed by Friday, June 14th and presented to Council at its regular meeting of Monday, June 24th.
The strategic planning exercise is being lead by the St. Lawrence College Corporate Learning and Performance Improvement office, which delivers professional development and consulting services to a wide range of private and public sector clients.
