Pacte Rural input wanted
TheMemphremagog MRC is inviting individuals and organizations to take part in a public consultation about the Pacte Rural.
In order to define its priorities and orientations when it comes to development, a public consultation will be held on Wednesday, June 11th, from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm, in the community center of Ste-Catherine-de-Hatley (85 Grande-Rue). Anyone interested should register by calling Sandra Gagnon at 819 843-9292, ext. 24. Because the number of places is limited, organizations are asked to send one representative only.
Those registered will receive a consultation document that will include, among other things, the statistics from the years 2007 to 2014 as well as the investment parameters of the new policy. After studying these, they will define three priorities and submit them during the public consultation. People can also send in their comments in writing to the MRC until June 20th.
“This new Politique nationale de la ruralité is an occasion for the population and organizations to comment on the orientations for the coming years,” said Alec van Zuiden, the president of the MRC’s rurality committee and the
