Mr. Mayor and Council,
By any measurement the public engagement around the ReThink initiative has been an incredible success. In recognition of the tens of thousands of hours that the public has invested in this important project and in order to allow as many people as possible to witness the unveiling of the draft report I would like to request that the presentation scheduled for 4pm this Thursday (May 22) be rescheduled for 5pm (or 5:30pm) that same day.
One of the big gaps in the public engagement process comes at the end when you close the loop and say “we were listening to you and this is what we heard” and making a small schedule change will be a great demonstration that we’re as important now as we were at the beginning.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
London Citizen and Ward 11 Resident
