Work on updating the Burlington Community Engagement Charter has been underway since mid-September. Workshops are now complete but there is still time to complete the online workbook and survey.
Since mid-September, staff have been working with residents through an online workbook and survey as well as five in-person workshops and one online workshops. Staff have also been seeking input from City advisory committees and other community partners, such as the Halton Multicultural Council.
Thank you to everyone who has attended a session or completed the online workbook and survey.
Please share this message to those around you. We need more input into the Community Engagement Charter.
We believe in the power of community and the invaluable role that each individual plays in shaping the world around us. That's why we are reaching out to emphasize the significance of public input and your unique voice in decision-making processes.
Public input is the cornerstone of a thriving and inclusive society. It serves as a catalyst for positive change by bringing diverse perspectives to the table. Your insights, experiences, and opinions contribute to a richer, more comprehensive understanding of the issues at hand.
Here are a few key reasons why your input is so crucial:
Diverse Perspectives: Every individual brings a unique background, set of experiences, and viewpoints to the table. When we gather public input, we create a mosaic of perspectives that better reflects the needs and aspirations of our community.
Informed Decision-Making: Public input ensures that decisions are well-informed and reflective of the community's values. By actively participating in the decision-making process, you help shape policies, projects, and initiatives that align with the collective vision.
Accountability and Transparency: Public input fosters transparency and accountability in governance. When decisions are made with input from the public, it builds trust between communities and decision-makers. Transparency reinforces the idea that decisions are made for the benefit of the public as a whole.
Empowerment: Your voice is a powerful tool for change. By actively engaging in public input processes, you not only contribute to shaping your community but also empower yourself and others to actively participate in the democratic process.
Whether it's providing feedback on local projects, participating in community forums, or sharing your thoughts through surveys, your input is a vital component of our shared journey towards a better future.
We encourage you to stay informed about opportunities to contribute your input, attend public meetings, and actively participate in discussions that impact our community. Your voice is a catalyst for positive change, and together, we can create a more inclusive and vibrant future.
Thank you for being an active and engaged member of our community.
