Economic Development

A Message from the Chair – Susan Sonnenburg

As newly appointed chair of Economic Development, I look forward to this term with enthusiasm and hope.

We have a brand new Strategic Plan, new committee members and lots of great ideas to move our Township forward.

The 5 key areas identified by residents, user groups and business owners are:

1. Infrastructure, maintenance and improvement
2. Community and economic development
3. Tourism
4. Health and wellness
5. Signage/communication

Note: Check out our Strategic Plan to see the action items for each area.

It will take a lot of dedication, hard work and commitment to see these through to fruition. Together with our dedicated staff and committee, teamwork, partnerships and your help we can realise the goals we have set.

To quote Barack Obama: “Change will not come if we wait for some other person, some other time. We are the ones we have been waiting for. We are the change we seek!”
