There will be a public meeting apparently, on Aug. 5, at 6pm [location TBA]
…for citizens of the Town to grade how we are doing in certain areas. We want to know what we are doing well and where we need to improve!
Your input will become part of Wolfville’s Vital Signs – a survey of life in our Town that examines everything from health and wellness, community belonging, the economy and the environment (and more!).
Your opinions will:
-help us gain a better understanding of the needs of our community
-influence the Wolfville Community Fund’s funding priorities; and
-be used by community leaders, politicians, donors and others to inform important decisions that affect our quality of life.
If they are looking for vital signs they might notice that businesses are flat lining.
The survey was put together in cooperation with another outfit called BALLENS – i.e. Business Alliance for Local Living Economies NS. They believe in:
The “Triple Bottom Line”: People, Planet, Profits. We imagine communities of every size engaged in sustainable agriculture, green building, renewable energy, zero-waste manufacturing and independent retail – what we call the building blocks of Living Economies.
Do you think either of these groups has what it takes to give our businesses a transfusion? Heck even Hatt and Kull [you can’t get any more environmental than they were] couldn’t survive here.
*PS. Community Foundation of NS is a founding member of BALLE – Ecology Action Centre is another founding group. We suppose they all get funding as different organizations but they all link up and cooperate and, we suppose, have a similar agenda.
