Open houses conclude but residents can still provide feedback

Posted on:
June 8, 2022

Victoria County staff hit the road to host a series of open houses to gather feedback from residents about the 2022 Electoral Boundary Review, Accessibility and a Local Improvement Charge (LIC) bylaw.

The open houses were an opportunity for residents to meet with staff, learn about the two initiatives and the bylaw and provide feedback. The conversations and information we gathered from residents will be used to:

  • develop an Accessibility Plan for Victoria County;
  • complete a review on Electoral Boundary Review and submit an application to the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board; and
  • provide Victoria County Council the results on the LIC poll.  

Submit your feedback online
If you were unable to attend an open house or prefer to fill out a survey online to provide your feedback there’s still time. The Accessibility and Electoral Boundary Review surveys will remain open for a few more weeks.

ACCESSIBILITY
Victoria County is developing an Accessibility Plan to offer more inclusive municipal programs and services. The goal is to identify and eliminate barriers for people with disabilities at Municipal-owned facilities. Your valuable feedback about the barriers you experience when accessing municipal facilities or using municipal services and programs will help inform us on the best approach forward.

ELECTORAL BOUNDARY REVIEW
Victoria County conducts an electoral boundary review every eight years and is due for a review in 2022. The purpose is to ensure the fairness of the size, style and governance structure of council and the distribution of polling districts and boundaries. Your input is an integral part of our review and application to the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board.
