Share your input on Minnedosa’s Community Strategic Plan
The Council of the Town of Minnedosa is in the process of building a Community Strategic plan and we want to hear from residents, the business community and all stakeholders on how we can improve the quality of life and contribute to a thriving region.
Once approved, the 2022 – 2027 Community Strategic Plan will be a guiding document for Council and staff for the next five years and will identify areas of focus, strategies and performance measures that will help us meet the needs of our community.
