Municipality of North Grenville to host Rural Summit

The Municipality of North Grenville is pleased to announce that they will be hosting a Rural Summit on Saturday, November 26, 2016.

The Summit will bring North Grenville’s community together to discuss ideas and opportunities on how to enhance communications on the Municipal decision-making process and ensure that the rural way of life in North Grenville is preserved.

In preparation for the Summit, the Municipality has launched an online survey that asks the community to provide valuable input into the topics and areas of interest that will be discussed at the Summit. The survey is available here until October 21, 2016.


Hard copies of the survey will also be available at the North Grenville Municipal Office (285 County Road 44) and at the North Grenville Public Library (1 Water Street). The Library is also offering support services for those who would like to complete the survey online, but don’t have Internet access. Just drop in at the library and they will be happy to assist you.

The Summit is being held in response to the 2013 Community Strategic Plan that was adopted by Council on June 24, 2013,” said Mayor David Gordon. “Council is looking forward to this inaugural event to work together to support our rural area.”.

The Strategic Plan goes on to explain that “local residents enjoy the small town feel of North Grenville. For many, it is an opportunity to appreciate nature, friendly neighbours and the benefits of a rural quality of life. Residents on farms, acreages and in North Grenville’s hamlets – Oxford Mills, Oxford Station, Bishops Mills, Burritts Rapids and Heckston – enjoy rural charm at a relaxed pace with quick access to urban centers for everyday goods and services”.

The Summit will include presentations, information and discussion to foster communications and suggestions on how we can all continue to work together to support our rural area and benefit from our rural way of life.

Registration and more details for the Rural Summit will be available soon.
