Nanaimo public engagement task force launches pilot program

Program will discuss public’s priorities for city’s future

The city’s community engagement task force hopes to draw on public opinion about Nanaimo’s future with the public engagement pilot program.

The program kicks off with its first session, to be hosted Nov. 23, 6-9 p.m. at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre.

The theme of the evening will be Building Nanaimo for the Future; What are Your Priorities?

Residents will have the opportunity to discuss various topics with city council and task force members and other residents during the session, to be facilitated by Pam Shaw, Vancouver Island University’s director of master of community planning program, and students of the program.

Topics that fall under the theme will be taken from public submissions made ahead of the session by Nov. 17 and people wishing to attend are asked to RSVP by Nov. 17.

Discussion topic submissions and RSVPs can be made through the city’s Facebook page, by e-mailing PublicEngagement@nanaimo.ca, by telephoning 250-755-4460 ext. 4265 or by filling out a form published in the Nov. 9 and 16 editions of the News Bulletin and dropping them off at city hall, 455 Wallace Street.
