March 2nd Economic Development Workshop

The second community workshop for the ‘Growing Malcolm Island’ strategic planning project was held on March 2nd at the F.O. Hall. The goals of the meeting were  to gather feedback on the economic development vision, objectives and strategies developed through the project so far, and to discuss how any specific actions might be implemented by the community. Approximately 35 people attended the meeting.
 An interactive question and answer survey was part of the workshop, giving participants an opportunity to anonymously ‘vote’ on the proposed objectives and strategies. With the questions presented on a screen at the front of the hall, participants rated answers by using an electronic ‘clicker’ which automatically tallied and then presented the results. This exercise was a quick and effective way to get community feedback on the important ideas that have surfaced during the ‘Growing Malcolm Island’ project.

For anyone who was unable to attend, but who would like to be able to add their voice to the conversation, please take a moment to fill out the survey here ( ). Thank you and we look forward to a great turnout at the next workshop, which will be held Sunday April 13th at the FO hall, from 1-4PM. See you there!
