Chestermere Conversations

You're Invited to Join the Conversation!

We want to talk to you – about a whole range of topics. engagement logo

This is often called ‘public engagement’ or ‘public participation’. We’ve done this quite a bit in the past on a range of topics including cannabis legalization, public hearings for new developments, and how we should upgrade the off-leash area.

Going forward, whenever we have an opportunity for official public input, we will refer to it as having an official ‘Chestermere Conversation’ and use the logo to the right.

Getting Started

We are working on making public engagement more effective. To do that, we need to set our guidelines for how and when we will officially consult with you, the residents of Chestermere.

Council passed a new Public Engagement & Consultation Policy on July 3, 2018. We asked for resident input and made two changes from our original version thanks to your feedback. 

Public Engagement Survey

To make sure we get it right, we also wanted your feedback on how we connect with you and asked for input via a survey that was open from June 15-30. Thank you for participating! 

You can read the survey results here. 

Now that the survey is complete, City staff will use the feedback to create internal guidelines for conducting public engagement activities.

Check back to this page for more information in the coming months.
