|North Hatley is at a crossroad with a significantly exhausted commercial situation and an important level of debt, which has brought the municipality to move forward with a process of strategic planning. This process has just begun. |
The municipal council of North Hatley would like the involvement of its entire community in order to bring together the guidelines and orientation for its development. This process seeks therefore to encourage the community and its partners to contribute to the perenity and development of our way of life, on topics such as arts and culture, identity, heritage and the development of land use planning, sustainable development, economic diversification, as well as public finances and management.
We have put together a steering committee made up of citizens from different areas of our community, whose task will be to work and reflect upon this strategic process.
We already know that this process is essential, but within the current context, where a crisis without precedent within the public health sector has sequestered the entire planet, it is of capital importance.
The community of North Hatley and its internationally recognized strengths contain strong potential for development. But the new rules in front of us will surely serve to modify our way of life. This particular context represents for North Hatley not only a challenge, but also and above all the opportunity to obtain a novel and mobilising vision around a plan of action that looks toward the future, with the greatest respect to its values, its history and its distinct character.
Espace Stratégies is the consultant that has been retained to accompany us throughout the length of this process. Specializing in the accompaniment of strategic planning for municipalities and Regional County Municipalities, this firm’s approach rests on the mobilisation of the local area and the understanding of ecosystems ; But equally, it is in the additional of your expertise, as well as your attachment to our village, that this process begins to take shape.
Other public consultations are planned within the process and we would like to ask for your participation, in order for you to share your opinion with us, your recommendations and your thoughts. Please be assured that we will be informing you about the holding of consultation activities as well as the form that these activities will take, as soon as they have been organized. In light of our current situation which limits gatherings or meetings and in order to respect government guidelines, we need to evaluate different options for consultation, including videoconferencing.
Here is the schedule of consultations that will be held, for the moment and taking into account the situation of COVID-19, by videoconference. A series of 5 workshops of 45 minutes (from 7:00 pm to 7:45 pm on the dates indicated in the schedule).
STRATEGIC PLANNING UPDATE
The public consultations generated a significant amount of information, all of which is equally important. Many of our citizens have spoken through email and other various platforms. Citizen participation went beyond what was hoped for and we are sincerely grateful.
With the collaboration of the consultant, the committee is presently consolidating all the information received, in order to determine which actions to prioritize. A final discussion will take place with the members of the committee, then with the City Council.
By early February, all while taking into account the health measures associated with COVID-19, the activity is expected to conclude with a public presentation.
The Strategic Planning Committee takes this opportunity to wish you a Happy New Year. Even with the many challenges remaining, we wish you a year full of hope.
