Have Your Say, Wetaskiwin!

City launches new community engagement site

Wetaskiwin residents have brand new way to have their say!

The City of Wetaskiwin launched a new online community engagement site Feb. 7, a chance for community members to share their thoughts on municipal projects.

Through discussion forums, surveys, interactive maps and more, Have Your Say, Wetaskiwin offers numerous ways to connect with each other and city representatives. Users can even post ideas or stories, or vote for ideas they like best, and share information on their own social media for additional discussion.

“This online engagement tool is a great way for Wetaskiwinites to remain informed and engaged on issues that affect them without drastically cutting into their personal time,” says Mayor Tyler Gandam. “Council continues to prioritize innovative communication and looks forward to hearing more feedback from local community members.”

Hosted by Bang The Table, Wetaskiwin is the smallest city in Alberta to launch with the community engagement company, whose clients range from Alberta Health Services to Brisbane, Australia.

The city is excited for the engagement possibilities the platform supports, launched with project pages for the 2020 budget engagement, the coming wastewater treatment facility upgrade, and an interactive map where locals can pin locations within Wetaskiwin where they find a strong sense of belonging.

“Having a dedicated online space for engagement helps ensure on-going dialogue with community members instead of limiting public participation to solely in-person consultations,” said Ren Goode, communications manager with the City of Wetaskiwin. “New information and engagement tools will be added to each project as they progress, with additional consultation projects added over time.”

Here’s how you can get involved:

• Visit the Have Your Say site, where you’ll see different municipal projects of community interest.

• Check out the engagement options for each project.

• While registration isn’t required, users are encouraged to register as a site participant to fully engage on topics that matter to them and to receive updates on new projects when they’re added to the site. Anonymous users can access the site, but some engagement features will be limited for those who have not registered.
