LaSalle launches public survey, open houses on strategic plan

The Town of LaSalle is looking for your input as it puts together the plan that will manage change in the years to come.

“LaSalle 2050” is about planning for the next three decades.

“Strategic planning is about managing change and making decisions today that will shape our tomorrow,” read a release from the town. “It will become a foundational element of our municipality led by today’s council members and those in the future.”

However, councillors can not do it alone, so they are asking residents to take ten or fifteen minutes out of their day to answer its community survey. October 31 is the deadline.

Town officials are also holding two open houses at the Vollmer Culture and Recreation Complex on Saturday, October 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and on Tuesday, October 29, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

“It is very important for our community to be involved in this process,” said Larry Silani, director of development and strategic initiatives. “We also have sessions planned to hear from community stakeholders and students from the local high schools. By answering the survey, we will gain insight into what our community hopes for the future of LaSalle.”
