Public Engagement Plan
A Public Engagement Plan has been developed to identify opportunities to gather information from members of the public and stakeholders. Input received is critical to making informed decisions, which are supported by the Village residents.
This plan has been developed to establish a communication channel between the public, the Village, applicable regulatory agencies, and the Project Team throughout the duration of the study. This plan aims to achieve this communication by sharing information with the public regarding the planning process, and by providing a variety of occasions for the public to provide input.
