Strategic Planning Committee
|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).
