Town Councillor Bill Evans joins us every Tuesday on Boardwalk to talk about town affairs and public engagement. He had a lot to say about the public engagement process around downtown redevelopment, on the heels of the launch of the Town of Sackville’s public survey on the redevelopment of Bridge Street. We discuss the way in which the Town sets priorities around business development, and the role of citizen input. He also sheds some light on the work he did with the Sackville Good Governance Committee prior to his election as a town councillor. The Committee put pressure on Town Councillors to develop more transparent practices around decision making, and ultimately opened Town discussion meetings to citizen participation.
