Wilmot Township Strategic Plan: Ward Town Hall Meetings

Hello Everyone,

As you may or may not be aware, the Township of Wilmot has recently been asking residents, “What’s YOUR Wilmot?” With help from community members, Municipal representatives (including staff and members of Council) have been asking you what you love about Wilmot, what your vision is for Wilmot’s future, and what you think would improve Wilmot.

These efforts are part of the development of a Strategic Plan for the Township that will establish a long-term vision and mission for the Municipality, as well as goals, objectives, and short-term action plans. To continue this process, residents are being invited to join the Township in November in a discussion about the future of Wilmot at any of the following four Ward Town Hall Meetings:

  • Ward 4: November 7 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Trinity Lutheran Church (23 Church Street, New Hamburg)
  • Ward 2: November 13 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the St. Agatha Community Centre (1793 Erb’s Road, St. Agatha)
  • Ward 3: November 20 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Township of Wilmot Municipal Office (60 Snyder’s Road. W., Baden) 
  • Ward 1: November 28 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the New Dundee Community Centre (1028 Queen Street, New Dundee)

At the meetings, participants will be asked to brainstorm Wilmot’s strengths and weaknesses, as well as its opportunities and threats. Participants will also be asked to suggest ingredients for the vision and mission statements, as well as goals for Wilmot. Lura Consulting, contracted to assist in developing the plan, will be facilitating the meetings.

If possible, please arrive at the meeting by 7:00 p.m. at which point an introductory presentation will take place. Please note, that regardless of where you live, you are welcome to attend any of the meetings.

If you are unable to attend any of the meetings, comment cards and drop boxes for their return are available at the Municipal Office in Baden, the Wilmot Recreation Complex, the Baden, New Dundee and New Hamburg Libraries, the St. Agatha Post Office (Stop to Shop), and the Foxboro Green, Morningside, and Stonecroft Adult Lifestyle Communities. You can also provide your ideas online by visiting www.wilmot.ca/whatsyourwilmot and following the link to a brief, three question survey.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask. You can send an email to: whatsyourwilmot@wilmot.ca or call: 519-634-8519, x 430.

Please share this message with others who may wish to participate.

Thank you, and I hope to see you there,

Grant Whittington
Township of Wilmot, CAO
