Plan Eastern Nova - Community Vision Workbook

At the Open Houses for Plan Eastern Nova, we discussed the importance of hearing your vision for your community to help ensure the new planning documents align with the community’s goals and values. To help facilitate that conversation (in a Covid-friendly way), we’ve developed a Community Vision Workbook. This simple document is designed to help individuals, families, friends and organizations to share their vision for the future of their community. Complete it around the kitchen table, or get some folks together to reflect on the past, present and future of your community. There are eleven guiding questions, and the activity can take as few as 10 minutes to complete, or as long as you like depending on the depth of your conversations and the size of your group.

You can print it off and fill it in, or complete the fillable PDF by downloading the file, filling in your answers, saving it and sending it back to us. If you have any questions you can contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Check out the Workbook at www.planeasternnova.ca

Accessibility Plan

Consultation

Accessibility Plan The Municipality of the County of Richmond and the Village of St. Peter’s want to ensure that all residents and visitors have fair and appropriate access to Municipal and Village services, regardless of age or ability, so are undertaking the development of Accessibility Plans to improve the accessibility of municipal and village services.  

From January 17 to January 30, 2022, we invite residents to share their feedback on accessibility in the Municipality and Village to identify what works, what doesn’t, and how things can be improved. These community insights will be used to help shape the creation of the Accessibility Plans being developed for the Municipality and the Village. This plan is due to be completed by April 1, 2022. 

This Accessibility Plan will be the first of its kind for the Municipality and the Village. It will be used to shape decision-making for improving access to services, transportation, buildings, sidewalks, parks, trails, and other infrastructure owned or operated by the Municipality or the Village.  

For the Municipality and the Village to improve accessibility to the services they provide in our communities, it’s very important that we hear from those residents who are facing accessibility challenges and their families to address the issues they are facing directly. This engagement process has been designed to provide multiple opportunities for the public to share their insights and experience and provide practical direction for meeting the needs of those living with disabilities.
