The City of Peterborough has launched a new online community engagement space called Connect Peterborough where people can share their ideas and opinions on municipal projects.
“We want to make it as easy as possible for you to engage with your City,” Mayor Diane Therrien says. “Not everyone has the time or wants to attend formal meetings. With Connect Peterborough, you can share your ideas and opinions, when and where it’s convenient for you.”
Connect Peterborough is mobile responsive, and people can engage with the community from their home computer, tablet or smartphone. The site offers a variety of ways to connect with the City and other members of the community through discussion forums, spaces to post ideas, surveys and interactive maps.
The platform kicks off featuring project pages for the Peterborough Transit study, the City’s 2020 Budget process, and the Official Plan update as well as an interactive map where people can share photos of their favourite fall places in Peterborough. New information and engagement tools can be added to each project as they progress, and new consultation projects will be added over time. Click here to check it out.
