MUNICIPALITY OF THE DISTRICT OF LUNENBURG, NOVA SCOTIA – The Municipality of the District of Lunenburg is inviting residents to participate in their annual Your Government, Your Ideas engagement campaign this October, and tell us what’s important to them.
Each year, Council selects a short list of projects to focus on, based on information received from residents, community groups, provincial and federal government, and staff. After much discussion, Council approves the Municipality’s strategic priorities for the next 18 months, then work with staff to pass a budget in the spring based on these priorities.
Community members are invited to visit engage.modl.ca/YGYI2021 to learn about each of MODL’s current strategic priorities and add their comments or questions.
Two in-person events are scheduled for Thursday, October 14, at 3pm and 7pm, at the Municipal Services Building in Cookville. Each event will include a presentation from the Mayor, a Q&A session, and an opportunity for attendees to speak with staff experts on projects like MODL2040 and our Climate Change Action Plan. Please note: attendees must show proof of vaccination or valid medical exemption to attend the in-person events. The 3pm presentation will be streamed on Facebook for those who cannot attend in person.
“Your Government, Your Ideas is an opportunity for residents to learn more about the Municipality’s accomplishments and plans for the upcoming year, as well to ask questions and provide us with their thoughts on various issues,” says Mayor Carolyn Bolivar-Getson. “I encourage residents to spend a few minutes to give us their thoughts online or join us at one of the meetings.”
