Have you heard about the latest project planned for the City of Delta? Or Mayor Harvie’s photo contest for kids? If not, it’s time to check out Let’s Talk Delta!
The City of Delta’s new online engagement portal is your place to stay up-to-date on the latest information from the City, and have your say about projects the City is working on, says Dammy Ogunseitan, Communications Advisor.
“Come to the site, sign up, and find out what’s happening in your community. We want to make sure residents are engaging with everything we do,” Ogunseitan says. “Together we can build a healthy city that’s connected, diverse and innovative.”
By pulling everything together in one easy-to-navigate location, the Let’s Talk Delta platform will help present and guide public consultations in a consistent way.
Here’s a look at some of what you’ll find:
- Mayor Harvie’s photo contest for kids – an Activities at Home Photo Contest to encourage Delta kids aged 5 to 15 to stay active and creative with activities at home during COVID-19.
- Questions about Delta’s recycling program? Learn about Recycle 2020’s 3 key changes to Delta’s residential recycling program.
- Share your ideas to improve the municipality.
By sharing your voice, you’ll help shape your community.
Engagement encourages participation, action, personal responsibility and democracy, and recognizes that Delta belongs to everyone who lives here – we all have a say in City efforts that affect our quality-of-life.
The City’s in-person consultations, such as open houses, pop-ups, coffee chats, focus groups and workshops, will still happen, but because face-to-face engagement isn’t always possible, Let’s Talk Delta makes it easy to learn about the City activities, strategies and programs. You can also connect with the City at any time on matters where community input would help shape Delta.
