ABOUT THE PROJECT
The Town of Cochrane and the Cochrane community recognize that public input can improve municipal decision-making. Since the current Public Engagement Policy was last approved in 2014, expectations and technology have changed: community members expect municipal governments to gather more feedback and be more open, transparent and consultative in their decision making; and municipalities now use more platforms, channels and virtual tools to engage residents. Residents are looking for opportunities to share their views, voice their opinions and provide feedback based on their own experiences.
In addition, amendments to the Municipal Government Act (MGA) require municipalities to adopt a public participation policy that identifies the types or categories of approaches and circumstances that will be used to engage stakeholders.
Town Administration has initiated a comprehensive review and re-write of the policy, along with the development of a framework and toolkit for internal use, to ensure it meets the needs of residents.
PROVIDE YOUR INPUT
We want to build a policy that’s for the community, by the community. Tell us more about how and when you’d like to be engaged.
Please fill out the survey to tell us what you think about public engagement in Cochrane. We’ll report on the results of your feedback at a later date.
