Rosemère, May 17, 2018 – The Town of Rosemère invites its population to take part, in large numbers, in the consultative measure on its new strategic vision statement, “Rosemère, a proud, green and prosperous town”. The public consultation will also deal with the influence of this vision on the sectors of town planning, of infrastructure/equipment and of services to citizens. Through this process, the Town seeks to obtain its citizens’ opinion on the new strategic vision that will guide Rosemère’s development.
The Westram administration has infused a new leadership style, both in-house and with the Town’s residents. For mayor Westram, this has involved working in conjunction with the Town’s personnel as well as its population, to establish a town that meets its residents’ highest expectations while respecting their ability to pay, and provides its employees with a sound and stimulating working environment.
“Since we base our decisions on principles of proximity, attentiveness, dialogue, respect and transparency, we first consulted our employees, who provide our residents with quality services on a daily basis. Now, we are preparing to consult Rosemerites along with the community and business partners who create and contribute to the vitality of our living environment. We are quite proud of this collective consultation process, which will define the Rosemère of tomorrow, particularly since it is the first concrete measure implemented in keeping with the new Citizen Participation Policy, which was adopted on May 14,” stated mayor Eric Westram.
In order to obtain the opinion of the largest number of residents, the Town has planned different measures:
- Online survey from May 21 to 31, the duration of which is estimated at about fifteen minutes.
- Public dialogue sessions with citizens on June 13 at 6:30 p.m. or on June 16 at 1 p.m. at the Community Centre.
- Meeting with a focus group which will be constituted randomly of 8 to 10 participants from online survey respondents who indicated an interest in taking part in a focus group. Its purpose is to obtain a more in-depth opinion of citizens with regards to the strategic vision.
- Meeting, by invitation, with representatives of community and business groups scheduled in June.
Results of these consultative exercises will then be analyzed, summarized and disseminated to residents.
