The Municipality reports a strong response from residents to the public engagement sessions.

Residents, stakeholders, community groups, and municipal volunteers participated in 11 drop-in sessions and 100 face-to-face meetings.

The main consensus so far is for development along the waterfront.

Furthermore, the online response is just as strong as the RMWB collected over 1,000 completed surveys.
