Rosslanders dropped in at the Miners Hall to give city council feedback on what they think the goals and priorities should be for the next three years.

Rossland gets strategic

Rossland city council hosted a public input session at the Miners Hall on Thursday, Sept. 17.

The walls of the Miners Hall were decorated with large posters on Thursday, Sept. 17, where Rosslanders could indicate what they thought were important priorities using stickers and stick notes.

Rossland city council is entering into a strategic planning session for the next three years, and hosted a public input session to get feedback from Rosslanders on the issues they think are important, and what they think the priorities should be.

Upon entering the Miners Hall, participants were given a brief orientation and a sheet of stickers at the first station.

The second station laid out what the current council has accomplished since taking office.

“Here we’re thumping our chest a little,” said Councillor Andy Morel, “with some of the things that we took on this year since the election.”

As they made their way around the hall to different stations, participants could see some of the priorities and issues that city council and staff had identified for the next three years.

“There’s also opportunities to provide your input on those priorities. What you see as a Rossland resident that are of interest to you and you feel that they mean something and need to be pursued,” explained Morel.

Participants identified which priorities they thought were important by using coloured stickers, and also had the opportunity to share their own priorities by using large sticky notes.

Another station also offered Rosslanders to chat one-on-one with one of the councillors or the mayor.
