West Nipissing is looking for public input on two different issues in the community.
One is on the future of housing while the other is a development strategy for the former Sturgeon Falls mill site.
“These projects are part of a commitment from council to ensure that West Nipissing continues to attract and retain families, talent, and businesses to our wonderful municipality,” says Bruno Lepage, Chair of the West Nipissing Economic Development Committee. “I encourage everyone to take an active role in shaping these projects and our municipality’s future.”
Two virtual workshops are lined up for next week.
The first workshop, on July 26, involves developing a strategy to assess and address housing needs.
The municipality says the strategy will address issues related to housing supply, affordability, and increased housing choice, ensuring West Nipissing continues to be an affordable and welcoming place to live.
The next night, on July 27, a virtual workshop is being held to gather public comments and ideas involving the former mill site in Sturgeon Falls.
The municipality says the project will involve preparing a master concept plan for the redevelopment of the site and an associated development strategy to attract potential partners and investors.
“With its prime location on Highway 17, at the Sturgeon River, the redevelopment of the former mill site is a major economic development priority for the Municipality,” states a release.
Registration for both sessions is requested before Friday, July 22.
