Red Deerians are invited to “Shape your Red Deer”

April 26, 2022 9:30 AM
(Red Deer, Alberta)

Red Deerians are invited to share their big ideas and dreams for Red Deer as part of a public participation project: Shape your Red Deer, chart our community’s path to 2040.

Public feedback gathered as part of Shape your Red Deer will inform City Council’s 2022-2026 Strategic Plan, as well as The City’s Vision 2040 plan. These plans influence what The City does and how over the next four to twenty years. The Strategic Plan is a blueprint for the work The City will undertake over the next four years for the benefit of the entire community. To ensure the Strategic Plan aligns with other City plans, processes and priorities, the public participation workshop will also be asking participants about their long-term vision for Red Deer over the next 20 years and ideas on how to get there.

Launching today is an online engagement tool, where participants will be asked to provide their big ideas and dreams for Red Deer over the next twenty years, input on what The City should focus on over the next four years, and thoughts on what should guide municipal decision making. This engagement site will close on May 22.

There will also be two interactive workshops open to all members of the public:

Online: Tuesday, May 3
1 – 3:30 p.m.
Zoom

In Person: Monday, May 16
5 – 7:30 p.m.
Festival Hall, 4214 58 Street

To RSVP to either session, please visit www.reddeer.ca/2040

“Feedback gathered as part of Shape your Red Deer will influence the future projects and work that The City of Red Deer will undertake in the short, medium and long-term. We are asking our community to inform City Council’s new Strategic Plan and our Vision 2040 plan,” said Interim City Manager Tara Lodewyk. “We encourage all Red Deerians to be part of this exciting time and share their ideas with us by participating in the online or in-person workshops, or with the online engagement tool.”
