The Sault Ste. Marie Community Adjustment Committee (CAC) is looking for feedback from residents on our community’s current status within various sectors such as economic diversity, arts and culture, and the environment.
Visit the CAC website, www.futuressm.com to leave comments or email feedback to [email protected]. Open houses and presentations across the City will also be taking place over the next four to six weeks.
“The website provides information on our City’s current status on a broad range of issues from cultural vitality to economic diversification,” says Gayle Broad, CAC Chair. “This will provide a sound foundation for planning for the future and we now welcome innovative and creative ideas of how the community can build its resilience capacity into the future.”
More than 125 local residents have already been assisting the CAC with its work and hopes are that number will increase substantially with the website format and an upcoming Facebook page.
“Local businesses have helped us create videos and an interactive site,” says Katie Blunt, Project Coordinator for the CAC. “Many individuals, groups and organizations have helped us with fact-checking, recording the ‘Reality checks’ videos, and with identifying some opportunities for ongoing improvements. Now it’s the public’s turn.”
Over the next few weeks, CAC members and staff will be hosting open houses and making presentations to groups and organizations, as well as closely monitoring the responses received via the media and social media sites. Feedback from the public consultation shall be incorporated into the final planning by late March.
“We are on schedule to have the plan completed and submitted by April 24, 2017,” says Blunt.
