Topics For Discussion at Upcoming Public Forum

OpenForum(1)The City of Morden Council is pleased to announce the dates for the 2013 Public Forums.  They are May 6th, 2013 and November 4th, 2013.  Both will have a new format and will take place at the Access Event Centre in the Morden Chiropractic Centre Meeting Room at 7:00 pm.

The format of these Public Forums will start with a presentation of the topics that Council has chosen for discussion.  Once the presentation is complete, everyone will break into table groups. Each group will be given a list of questions for the public to answer and will appoint a chairperson and a recorder to record the answers.  A Council member will be present at each table. This Councillor will not get involved in the conversation other than to ask follow up questions of the residents.

 The topics for the May 6th Public Forum are:

  • Housing: Affordable housing, duplexes and secondary suites in residential areas.
  • Child Care: Need for more child care and how do we move forward to make it happen.

“Council looks forward to getting some good feedback on these subjects.  We hope this new format will encourage residents to come to the Public Forum to share their ideas. Everyone is welcome to attend,” said Mayor Ken Wiebe.
