2- Aim for December budget consultation
Dubbed as the “fundamental part of governance,” the city said it’s upcoming 2022 budget is going to “outline moving the city forward” and provide more than 200 daily programs and services “effectively and efficiently.”
Not only that, but the city is also developing its 2023 to 2026 Capital Plan.
For those who want to be more involved, they can visit vaughan.ca/budget to view upcoming public meetings, participate in an online feedback form, email the project team and more.
As for public consultation, the city said “residents are encouraged to join the conversation and help shape Vaughan’s promising future.”
The city is holding three electronic-participation public meetings in December to address the 2022 Budget. They are:
Special committee of the whole (public meeting) on Wednesday, Dec. 1 at 7 p.m.
Special committee of the whole (public meeting) on Tuesday, Dec. 7 at 7 p.m.
Special council meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 14 at 7 p.m.
3- Join survey to give feedback on how to connect Vaughan’s trails
The city said it’s working to “create a seamless and connected network of city-wide trails -- including the Bartley Smith Greenway.”
To back the city’s Bartley Smith Greenway Trail Feasibility Study to determine how to complete the development of a three-kilometre gap in the trail between McNaughton Road and Rutherford Road, residents' input is needed.
As public consultation is an important part of this process, the city wants to hear from you -- how do you use the Bartley Smith Greenway? Do you have ideas on how to connect the trail? Until Tuesday, Oct. 19, participate in an online survey to:
learn about the proposed trail alignment
find out more about the design process and project status
hear about the next steps of the project.
provide feedback on the proposed trail alignment.
