Simcoe Reformer - Times-Reformer - - OPINION -

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.
