Voluntary Planning Seeks Community Development Task Force Members

first_imgThe Voluntary Planning Board is looking for Nova Scotians interested in the future of all the province’s communities. Volunteers are needed to participate on Voluntary Planning’s Community Development Task Force. The task force will seek public participation to build a common vision for the future of Nova Scotia communities that will provide a framework for future development. The vision and policy recommendations will be presented to cabinet, the premier, and the public. “Nova Scotia needs to develop a common vision for its many communities,” said Ron Smith, chair of Voluntary Planning’s board of directors. “This is a chance for Nova Scotians to tell us their vision for the future of our communities, and to develop policy recommendations on how to achieve that vision.” Potential volunteers must be willing to invest time and energy over an 18-month period, beginning in October. Individuals interested in becoming a part of the Community Development Task Force should forward an expression of interest by Friday, Oct. 6. Submissions can be made by e-mail to volplan@gov.ns.ca, by fax to 902-424-0580, or by mail to Voluntary Planning, Suite 600, Joseph Howe Building, 1690 Hollis St., Halifax, N.S. B3J 3J9.
