Wilmot Township Strategic Plan: Ward Town Hall Meetings
As you may or may not be aware, the Township of Wilmot has recently been asking
residents, “What’s YOUR Wilmot?” With help from community members, Municipal
representatives (including staff and members of Council) have been asking you
what you love about Wilmot, what your vision is for Wilmot’s future, and what
you think would improve Wilmot.
These efforts are part of the development of a Strategic
Plan for the Township that will establish a long-term vision and mission for
the Municipality, as well as goals, objectives, and short-term action plans. To
continue this process, residents are being invited to join the Township in
November in a discussion about the future of Wilmot at any of the following
four Ward Town Hall Meetings:
- Ward 4: November 7 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at
the Trinity Lutheran Church (23 Church Street, New Hamburg)
- Ward 2: November 13 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at
the St. Agatha Community Centre (1793 Erb’s Road, St. Agatha)
- Ward 3: November 20 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at
the Township of Wilmot Municipal Office (60 Snyder’s Road. W., Baden)
- Ward 1: November 28 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the New Dundee Community Centre (1028 Queen
Street, New Dundee)
At the meetings, participants will be asked to brainstorm
Wilmot’s strengths and weaknesses, as well as its opportunities and threats.
Participants will also be asked to suggest ingredients for the vision and
mission statements, as well as goals for Wilmot. Lura Consulting, contracted to
assist in developing the plan, will be facilitating the meetings.
If possible, please
arrive at the meeting by 7:00 p.m. at which point an introductory
presentation will take place. Please note, that regardless of where you live, you are welcome to attend any of the
