We plan to take the public consultation seriously and feedback to be included in the plans.
Those who been to current city public open houses know very well that it is mostly a one way process. The plans are explained to public. That is it. Most often the questions of "Why" are not encouraged. Neither suggestions from public. We do intend to change it. There will be council members present in every possible city open houses to get feedback from people.
There are three major ways we are implementing our 'people participation' principle.
