Student calls for Langford opinions

Your Voice Langford slated for Sept. 23 at Our Lady of the Rosary church

Royal Roads University student

Speak up about public involvement on Langford’s planning decisions.

Royal Roads University student, Dory Thuot is hosting Your Voice Langford, an evening conversation on public engagement and the City of Langford.

Thuot is asking for participants to join her in her academic research as part of her Master of Arts in Leadership course. All of the information collected will be passed on to Langford staff.

“With the downtown revitalization project almost complete, now what’s in the future?” Thuot said. “My research is specific to the downtown core … it’s a way to contain the research.”

Through her work Thuot divided the stake-holders into three categories, business owners, downtown residents and active users such as people who work or shop in the downtown core.

During Your Voice Langford, Thuot aims to get at least 25 participants in each category.

While city planning includes areas such as parking, density and development, Thuot stresses this evening will focus on the city engaging its residents for future decisions.

“I want to see what promotes engagement and what would prevent people from wanting to be (engaged),” Thuot said. “This is a new thing for Langford and it’s been a challenge (for me) to get people out to talk. As a community we should all be involved.”

 

Your Voice Langford is Sept. 23 at 7 p.m. at Our Lady of the Rosary, 798 Goldstream Ave.  Participants must pre-register with Thuot at dorythuot@gmail.com.
