Share your voice, Shape our Town

Share your voice, Shape our Town Featured

We are excited to share the results from our first Engage Antigonish event!

 On January 31, approximately 140 members of our community came together to begin a discussion on the future of the Town of Antigonish, and to help us develop a citizen-led strategic plan. 

This was the first of two events we will be holding on this initiative. It was our intention to use this first event as an opportunity to gather themes and topics that matter to our community. 

With the help of skilled facilititators, there was rich discussion on issues that included:

Town Beautification, 

Outdoor Activity and Accessibility,

Sustainable Housing,

Arts & Culture Infrastructure

Creating Bike Friendly infrastructure, Transit and Mobility,

Mental Health,

Climate Change,

Creating a Senior-Friendly Community,

Youth Retention,

Promoting the Town and region,

Providing services and spaces for marginalized youth,

Attracting new business,

Supporting people with disabilities to be entrepreneurial, 

Town/County/StFX relations.

All of the ideas and feedback from the night have been reviewed and compiled into the following report. Please take some time to read through what we heard, and tell us what you think!

What's next?

We have already started planning our second event which will help us to identify more concrete ideas and approaches to addressing the topics we have heard during our first event. Follow us on Facebook, and stay tuned for more details!
