GCRDA Seeks Input into 5 Year Plan
Over the next several months, the Guysborough County Regional Development Authority (GCRDA) will be asking for input into the plan that will guide the economic development activities in Guysborough County for the next 5 years. The GCRDA is developing a new 5 year plan for the period 2012-2017.
“The GCRDA is taking a phased approach in developing the plan, “says GCRDA Executive Director, Dan Gillis. “The first step is to gather input from the public. We are looking for your thoughts, opinions and ideas on how you see the future of Guysborough County.” A survey has been prepared with the assistance of Consultant Ryan MacNeil and can be found on the GCRDA website at www.ConnectWithOurEnergy.com clicking on link on the right of the page. Paper copies can also be picked up at the Guysborough or Sherbrooke offices of the GCRDA or mailed directly to you by contacting our office at 533-3731 or 522-2432.
The next step of the process will be to seek input from the business community and leaders who also have a stake in the economy of Guysborough County. These surveys will be distributed via email and mail. The information gathered through these 3 surveys, as well as meetings held with municipal councils, will be reviewed by the GCRDA staff, board of directors and the external Consultant.
The third phase will be a Leadership Forum which will be held in September. The data collected through the survey process will be reviewed and used to develop priorities and actions for the plan. The final document is scheduled for completion later this fiscal year.
