Shout it from the rooftops, the word is love.

The City of Wetaskiwin’s Community Development department is launching a public engagement video campaign called I Love My City Wetaskiwin.

“We’re looking for people right now who have wonderful stories,” said community development manager Jennifer Fossen.

A variety of 30 second and two minute videos will be collected by the city’s community development department and will be used as a promotions campaign for the city.

“We want everyone and anyone that just loves Wetaskiwin,” said Fossen.

Fossen says one of the major goals of the campaign is to build pride in the community, and hopefully those feelings will resonate with potential investors, as well as recruit a number of city ambassadors who support and promote Wetaskiwin.

“There’s a lot of people I’ve met in the last year that absolutely love Wetaskiwin,” she added.

Once the Community Development department collects an initial database of videos it will begin releasing them, while continuing to collect further additions.

Anyone interested in participating is encouraged to contact Fossen at the city’s Visitor Information Centre, 780-361-4417.

Also in the name of public engagement the city is organizing the 100 Cups of Coffee initiative. City residents will be able to connect with staff in an informal setting at different community events over a cup of coffee. Fossen says the city wants to hear all the feedback residents have regarding Wetaskiwin, “The good, the bad, and the ugly.”
