The Municipality of the Township of Stanstead, mindful to inform each of its citizens of important decisions concerning the development of their municipality, invites you to the presentation of its strategic plan 2019-2023. This plan was developed following public consultations in May and June 2017 (survey and citizen meeting) and in the light of the work of a committee dedicated to the drafting of the action plan.
The meeting will take place on Saturday, August 25, 2018, from 9:30 am to 11:30 am, at the Town Hall, located at 778 Sheldon Road). We believe that holding this meeting, planned on a weekend, will allow us to count on the presence of more citizens, including seasonal and permanent.
The animation will be provided by Mr. Janick Anctil, Communication Jean Malo. Following the presentation of the strategic plan, citizens’ questions can be asked in English and in French.
