Let's Talk Greater Napanee Community Engagement Platform

We Need Your Input! Here's How You Can Share Your Voice and Get Involved in 2024:

Stay connected with your Municipal Council and staff through our new community engagement platform, 'Let's Talk Greater Napanee.' 

Visit Let's Talk Greater Napanee and register your account to get involved and stay informed! Let's Talk Greater Napanee will be the centralized source of information for public consultation opportunities.

Let's Talk Greater Napanee is a space for our community to share ideas, discuss important topic, provide feedback on policy and planning and contribute to the future of Greater Napanee.

There will be several major projects that Town staff will be engaging the public in over the course of 2024 as input into developing an inclusive, safe, healthy and viable community.

Our community engagement platform, Let’s Talk Greater Napanee, will be the centralized source of information for public consultation opportunities.

When the community comes together, it can lead to improved outcomes for our town. It is an opportunity to share your own aspirations, concerns, and values for our community with our municipal leaders. Community engagement allows our municipal leaders to show transparency, legitimacy, and efficiency in the decision making process, while understanding and embracing the needs, wants and ideas from residents thus creating an informed and involved community.

Online tools are not a replacement for traditional engagement methods, they are a valuable addition to the public participation process, providing key benefits for communities, including:

Reaching a Broader Audience

For those residents who lack the time, who don't live nearby meeting venues, or lack the inclination to contribute to face-to-face engagement process, online engagement offers an alternative participation medium.

More Accessible

Online platforms present data in a more digestible format, offering residents the option to consume essential background information and delve into varying levels of detail based on their interest. 

Inviting a Larger Range of Perspectives

Online participation offers a medium for broader, more moderate views. Residents have the ability to follow a more engaging process online; i.e. place a pin on a map, upload a photo, post a comment, and invite others to collaborate.

Producing Hard Data

Online engagement makes public participation visible and transparent and encourages input from everyone. In the traditional public participation process, capturing and analyzing data can be time consuming and inaccurate. With online tools, data is collected throughout the process and is immediately available for analysis; turning softer issues into more quantifiable data.

Sustained Participation

Online platforms pave the way for continuous Placemaking, helping our staff to capitalize on the community's opinion and inspiration. This data can be drawn on in future projects, helping staff develop an engaged and informed community, ready to take part in future public participation projects.

A Reduction in Cost

Traditional forms of engagement can be expensive, particularly newspaper ads and radio (it’s also hard to track how many people are reached and informed through these methods of communication). Many online methods of engagement are free. Those platforms that do cost a fee are well worth it for the tools the platform offers and the data it is able to track, indicating which tactics are effective and which ones are not.

* We recognize the accessibility needs of our residents. If you, or someone you know, has accessibility needs or limited internet access and cannot participate in the engagement process(s) online, please contact the Town at 613-776-1116 to arrange for an alternative method to participate in public engagement and to receive communications from the Town. *

If you have any questions regarding the 'Let's Talks Greater Napanee' platform, please contact Kylie Huffman at 613-776-1116.
