Want a say in the shaping of Erieau into the future?
Then mark April 30 down on your calendar.
That’s the date for a public meeting at the Erieau Community Hall to discuss the future direction of Erieau. It’s being put on by the Erieau Community Association and the municipality.
There will be two three-hour sessions, one at 9 a.m. and the second at 1:30 p.m. to present information gathered last month through a survey on the Let’s Talk Chatham-Kent website.
Erieau Community Association Chair Leo Heuvelmans said the association was pleased with the amount of interest generated by the survey, which resulted in more than 400 visits and in excess of 250 comments.
“It’s good to see so many people with an interest in our community,” he said in a media release. “We have a good base of information to take to the meeting.”
Those wishing to attend can register at Let’s Talk Chatham-Kent until April 28.
Municipal officials said sessions will be identical so there is no need for those interested to register for each one.
Heuvelmans said the goal of the ECA Strategic Planning Committee is to develop a multiyear strategic plan for Erieau related to projects, which are prioritized by Erieau residents and property owners. The plan will provide direction for fundraising activities and allocation of funds.
“We want to bring ideas to the table, get feedback from those who attend the meetings and begin to discuss if there are common themes, what projects should receive priority and examine costs,” he said.
