Help choose Sher­brooke’s next tourist project

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

With­the launch of the Sher­brooke Car­ticipe web­site, where cit­i­zens can sug­gest ideas, see the ideas of oth­ers, and share com­ments about tourism devel­op­ment in Sher­brooke, Des­ti­na­tion Sher­brooke is ask­ing cit­i­zens to imag­ine the fu­ture of Sher­brooke and vote for the tourism project that they like the best. Any­one with stim­u­lat­ing or dy­namic ideas and sug­ges­tions for re­creo-tourism devel­op­ment in Sher­brooke can put them on the Sher­brooke Car­ticipe web­site where they will be an­a­lysed by the team at Des­ti­na­tion Sher­brooke. Five projects will be cho­sen from all those sug­gested and they will be pre­sented to the public for a vote to choose the best. That project will come to fruition in 2016-2017.

“By putting in place this process, Des­ti­na­tion Sher­brooke hopes cit­i­zens take own­er­ship of the tourism devel­op­ment in their city. The or­ga­ni­za­tion also wants to hear the ideas, con­cerns and in­ter­ests of the cit­i­zens,” men­tioned Jean-Fran­cois Ouel­let, direc­tor of in­no­va­tion and devel­op­ment at Des­ti­na­tion Sher­brooke. “Who knows if it will be your great idea that sees the light of day!” he added.

Un­til May 15th, cit­i­zens are in­vited to visit sher­brooke.car­ticipe.com and share their best tourism ideas. The an­nounce­ment of the five fi­nal­ists and the be­gin­ning of the public vot­ing will take place on May 21st. On June 18th “La Bonne IDee”, the project cho­sen by the vot­ers, will be re­vealed.

“With La Bonne IDee, our cit­i­zens can come to­gether around a com­mon project that will make Sher­brooke shine,” said Remi De­mers, the pres­i­dent of Des­ti­na­tion Sher­brooke. Jean-François Ouel­let, direc­tor of in­no­va­tion and devel­op­ment at Des­ti­na­tion Sher­brooke, and Lynn Blouin, direc­tor of pro­mo­tion, sport and busi­ness tourism at Des­ti­na­tion Sher­brooke, hope cit­i­zens will share their tourism project ideas on the new Car­ticipe Sher­brooke web­site.
