County to host community round tables
Two more round tables will be held this month to gather community feedback about the future of the local economy. The sessions provide information as part of Norfolk County’s Economic Development Strategy Review. Sessions have already been held in Delhi, Port Rowan, Simcoe and Waterford. Results from this summer’s community surveys, which received more than 1,500 responses, are being shared at the two-hour-long interactive meetings. The Port Dover Community Round Table will be held Nov. 13 followed by the Emerging Economies Round Table on Nov. 21. “This is an opportunity for citizens to provide direct input into the framework that will form the basis of the new economic development strategy,” said Clark Hoskin, Director of Tourism and Economic Development for Norfolk County. “Recommended directions and priorities will be communicated to Norfolk County’s new council in 2019.” More information, including links to registration for all round tables, is listed on the Strategic Review web page at norfolkbusiness.ca/ strategy.
