Owen Sound residents can use a a new community engagement platform to get information about City initiatives, and share feedback and ideas. The City has launched a new digital space called Our City Owen Sound.
The site hosted by Bang the Table, includes polls, surveys, forums, maps, and more to enhance two-way communication between the City and its residents. A media release from the city said the site provides a safe, open environment for community engagement that anyone can access from the comfort of their home.
The first opportunities available on the site include the City's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Strategy, Kelso Beach at Nawash Park Master Plan, Waste Management Strategy, and Community Engagement Review.
The site also includes a Public Art Map, where you can share photos of the murals, sculptures, banners and other art pieces that enrich the City's public spaces.
People can join the conversation by registering online. You can also subscribe to project updates that will be delivered straight to your inbox.
"It is so important to listen to our citizens and get them engaged proactively and productively with the City. This new tool will enhance our ability to connect and collaborate with everyone in our community," said Mayor Ian Boddy.
