The Township of South Algonquin invites all permanent and seasonal residents to become part of the planning process for the future of your community by completing this "Future Directions Survey 2016". Your participation in this survey will ensure that the resulting plan will be a true reflection of what you have identified as both issues and opportunities for the future of South Algonquin. This survey can also be completed on-line by visiting www.southalgonquin.ca.
All results are confidential and will be reported in total numbers with no identifiable individuals or organizations. The results will form part of the Future Directions Strategy which will be finalized early in the fall of 2016.
The community consultation will continue with two public meetings in Whitney and Madawaska on each of May 18 and June 6. May 18 in Madawaska (4:30 pm to 6:00 pm at the Madawaska Complex, 26A Major Lake Rd.) and Whitney (7:00 pm to 8:30 pm at the Lester Smith Building, 32 Hay Creek Rd.) The May 18 meetings will focus on how we can build on the assets South Algonquin already has, and the creation of Mission and Vision Statements to guide us. The June 6 meetings ( 4:30 to 6:00 pm in Whitney and the 7:00 to 8:30 pm in Madawaska) will use the ideas collected at the first meetings, information from focus groups conducted with the assistance of Brock University, and the preliminary results from this survey, together with input from attendees, to develop a Future Directions Action Plan for moving forward.
Your input is valuable. Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey on-line or on paper copy. Blank surveys and drop boxes for completed forms can be found at the Township office and other locations in both Whitney and Madawaska. The deadline for completing the survey on-line or completing a paper copy is May 31, 2016.
