City of Nanaimo looks to strengthen relationships with neighbourhood associations

City asking for input on how neighbourhood groups can be supported and consulted

The City of Nanaimo is taking a closer look at how it interacts with its various neighbourhood associations.

As part of the ReImagine Nanaimo master planning process, the city has announced it will review how it works with neighbourhood associations and how it seeks input from those groups.

The city has asked neighbourhood associations how it can provide support and opportunities for engagement, and now the city is launching a public survey on the topic.

Mayor Leonard Krog said in a press release that the city has had working relationships with neighbourhood associations for decades.

“Overall these have been positive but it is clear that issues have arisen over the past few years with respect to how associations are organized and the level of support that the city is providing to them,” he said.
