Kingston, Frontenac County residents invited to help shape County strategic plan
The County of Frontenac is developing its Strategic plan and asking people living and working in Frontenac County and the City of Kingston to complete an online survey and/or to attend one of two public open house meetings to share their opinions.
According to a release from Frontenac County, the County Strategic Plan informs Frontenac County Council decisions regarding the growth and development of Frontenac County over the next several years. The County said it needs input from residents, business operators, and community organizations on a wide range of topics related to the work of Frontenac County including Fairmount Home and long-term care, Frontenac Paramedics and emergency response, land use planning, geographic information services, corporate services, marine services, economic development, and other County Council priorities and concerns.
“We believe that community engagement is key to developing a county strategic plan that reflects the needs and aspirations of the people who call Frontenac County home,” said Jannette Amini, Manager of Legislative Services/Clerk for Frontenac County. “We encourage all members of the community to share their thoughts on the issues and priorities that matter most to them.”
The two public meetings will take place as follows::
- Wednesday, Apr. 12, 2023, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Storrington Centre, 3910 Battersea Rd, Sunbury
- Thursday, Apr. 13, 2023, 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Soldiers Memorial Hall (Oso Hall), 1107 Garrett St, Sharbot Lake
