The City of Pickering is inviting residents and businesses to share their vision and ideas on the future of South Pickering.
By accessing an innovative yet simple online survey, participants can provide their input on where, how, and to what extent their neighbourhoods should grow and develop over the next decade and beyond.
“It is imperative that we engage our community early in the planning process,” said Tom Melymuk, Director, City Development. “This online survey will allow us to collect meaningful information on people’s likes, dislikes, and preferences in a simple, fun and effective way.”
Earlier this year, City Staff held a series of roundtable discussions with over 50 participants selected from across Pickering. These discussions provided valuable insight into the issues, opportunities and challenges people have with living and working in the City.
The newly launched survey will take the discussion to the next level by engaging the entire community in a meaningful conversation on the future of South Pickering.
The survey will provide the City with valuable feedback that will help influence decision making on the amount, location, scale and timing of new growth, as well as the design of main streets and neighbourhoods.
All those interested in taking the survey have until the end of June to visit the Pickering City Hall, Pickering Central Library, or Pickering Recreation Complex and complete the onsite survey, or http://www.pickering.ca/SPS and provide their input.
