You have til Monday, the 31st of Aug. to offer a written submission on Wolfville’s Strategic Plan. The deadline was extended to this date following complaints to Council that the time period they had first given for a response was too short, so let’s not waste the extra time they have given us to submit input.
You can read the draft of the Plan on the ToW website via this link [in pdf], but hard copies are also available at Town Hall or to read at the Wolfville Library.
Written submissions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org (Subject line: Strategic Plan) or dropped off at the Town Hall by Monday, August 31. Or they can be faxed to 542-4789
There will also be an “input session” on Tuesday, Sept 22, 2009 at 7 pm at the Fire Hall [with refreshments they say]but don’t let that prevent you from writing in your opinions also and we would think that you could also make comments on the town website in the comment section underneath the document link.
You may have received, some time ago, a notice in the mail with highlights of the plan. In case not, or in case it has been mislaid, we reproduce the content here.
