AH launches New Public Engagement Portal

The Township is pleased to announce the launch of the new Let’s Connect Algonquin Highlands public engagement platform.

Let’s Connect Algonquin Highlands is a multi-faceted portal the Township will use to consult and communicate with residents and community members on a variety of issues on an ongoing basis. It’s an opportunity for members of the public to share their ideas, concerns and opinions directly with the Township, with that feedback helping to inform decision-making and policy, and to shape the future of the community.

"We're excited to launch this more robust way of engaging with the community,” says Mayor Carol Moffatt. “We've had a lot of success with social media over the years but this is very different and will allow a more focused and issue-specific way for the public to participate in local government. Council already has myriad ideas for this portal and we're just getting started. I'd encourage folks to sign up and stay tuned as this exciting new platform evolves.”

Currently active on the site are the Township’s zoning by-law update – with discussions around cannabis cultivation, backyard hens, backyard beekeeping, septic system setbacks and much more – and a public survey seeking input that will be used in the creation of a new municipal communications plan for the Township.
