The Recovery Task Force is looking for volunteers for a brand-new initiative.
Continuing with their public engagement, small focus groups are being created.
Adam Hardiman with the Recovery Task Force tells Mix News the volunteers will help develop new information on general recovery.
“We just think this is just another thing we can do to develop engagement strategies with residents.”
These groups will allow for a deeper conversation between residents and municipal staff. Talks will be small round-table discussions, with the goal being to get feedback.
“At the beginning the task was put out the fire, which was a momentous task, but as we go through this process there are more and more projects all the time, there are more and more things we can conceivably share information on,” said Hardiman. “What we want to make sure that we’re doing it’s a community driven process.”
All volunteers will be able to give their feedback on selected recovery projects before they are launched to the rest of the public.
Participating residents will be able to provide feedback on select recovery activities before they are launched to the public.
To participate, residents must be in Fort McMurray. Applications can be done at rmwb.ca/engage or by calling the Pulse Line at 780-743-7000.
