MAYOR AND COUNCIL ARE LOOKING FOR YOUR INPUT TO DEVELOP WESTPORT’S STRATEGIC PLAN
Over the next three months, the Village of Westport is undertaking a process to develop a Corporate Strategic Plan, including a focus on economic development. With support from, McSweeney & Associates, a community strategic planning consulting firm, the goal is to begin positioning the Village of Westport to be a community that is future ready.
At this time, we are seeking your input to help us further understand the Village of Westport. Your views and opinions are important.
If you have any questions about the Corporate Strategic Plan process or this survey, please contact Paul Snider, CAO at the Village of Westport or Nancy Johnston from McSweeney & Associates.
Thank you for your participation and please keep in mind that all responses are strictly confidential
To say that this decision is unfortunate, is an understatement. Staff are following up with the contact person mentioned in the letter below for the reasons why our application was not supported by the Ontario Liberal government.
CAO Paul Snider is contacting the offices of Minister J Leal and Minister B Mauro, the two Ministries involved in the decision making, and is requesting meetings between Mayor Jones and the Ministers.
Yes, this is a set back, however we will continue to work to resolve the challenges of our current waste water treatment system and together we will come through 2017 with a dependable solution.
I thought it would be interesting to everyone to read the letter, so please see it below.
If you have any questions, pls call the councillor of your choice or me – 9195
If you need to contact someone outside of regular business hours for an emergency in the Village – i.e. water pipe break, alarm sounding, pls feel free to call me at home – 613-273-9195 or text/email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I received this email last week and checked that I could post it. Thank you to everyone who works so hard and makes our village the friendliest place to visit (and live!). Job well done!!
p.s. The bike repair kit Ruth mentions was donated by Rick Bonner and is on the Information Centre.

My name is Ruth Bonk and I am the touring events director for the Ottawa Bicycle Club.
We held our very first club touring event in Westport in May this year. We stayed at the Cove Inn. The feedback we have received from that event has been very positive and I want to share it with you.
Our riders found the area roads and drivers lovely and bicycle friendly. We have received comments on how nice it was that you visited and welcomed the group in person. There were remarks about how clean the tourist office and public washrooms are. We have even received a picture of the bicycle maintenance tool kit at your municipal office.
Thank you for your welcome and bicycle friendly environment.
We hope to add the Westport tour to our roster of annual touring events.
