Council Communications

Happy New Year everyone! It always feels like a “clean page” when January rolls around and we’re able to get going on new projects and plans for another year. One of the bigger undertakings for the Municipality in 2020 is a new Strategic Plan, and this is something you can help with! The updating of the 2012-2017 plan was deferred so that the new (2018) Council could be part of the process. Given all of the changes in Provincial policy last year, it’s really turned out to be a good time to be charting a course for our evolving community. A key part of developing a good strategic plan is community consultation. In order to create best possible plan, getting broad and inclusive input from you - the community - is key! We want to hear from residents who are part of every demographic including seniors and young families; members of

service clubs, community groups and associations; small businesses; rural and urban dwellers; and both new and long-time residents. Please check the Middlesex Centre website and social media pages in the coming weeks for information about meetings, surveys and other ways you can get involved. Mark your calendars and plan to have some fun! Family Day is coming up in February and Middlesex Centre will be hosting free public skating in both Komoka and Ilderton between 1:00 -2:50 p.m. Don’t forget to bring your helmets. As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you’d like to speak with me. It’s great to hear your ideas, thoughts and concerns! Best, Aina I’ll look forward to hearing from you, Aina Aina DeViet, Mayor Tel: 519.666.0190 X234 E-mail: deviet@middlesexcentre.on.ca | www.middlesexcentre.on.ca
