Community Engagement Update – October 6
As part of our ongoing commitment to community consultation, we recently invited members of the public to learn more about our proposed Milton Logistics Hub through a small group meeting and open houses in Milton, Burlington, and Oakville. These events are part a community consultation period currently being held through to October 31, 2017, including three events still to come (see below for more detail).
A small group meeting in Milton on September 26 welcomed members of the public for an interactive discussion about the proposed Project in a roundtable format. Here, participants were guided through elements of the project and were given the opportunity to ask questions and voice potential concerns. The small group meeting format enables participants to have a direct discussion with the Project Director and other project specialists on issues of interest. The unique setting allowed for an in-depth two-way discussion on questions raised by meeting participants.
Three open houses were also held between September 27 and October 4, and provided interested members of the public opportunities to drop-in and learn more about specific elements of the Project by speaking with a wide range of project specialists. The open house format provides a more flexible way to learn about the project on your schedule, at your own pace.
We want to thank everyone who took the time to come and learn more about the Project, and we look forward to continuing to engage with members of the community over the next few weeks. Remember, there are still many opportunities to learn more and provide input as part of this public consultation period that runs until October 31, 2017:
