Clintonville residents will have a number of opportunities in the near future to give their input regarding the direction of the city, and that’s just what city leaders are hoping for.
For decisions such as the future of the Clintonville Rec Center and old armory building, City Administrator Sharon Eveland says there’s limited time to fill out a survey.
“They can come by the library and city hall and pick up a little flyer that’s a little QR code on it,” she said about how to submit the survey. “They can scan and do it from their mobile phone. That’ll be open for another week and I really encourage people to do that and get us that input.”
Other opportunities will be available at the city’s Fall Fest, put on by the Clintonville Area Chamber of Commerce on Sept. 16.
“I’d encourage people to go to that, but also we will be having some of our consultants from the firm that’s handling the downtown revitalization study speaking with community members about their thoughts on some of the issues we’re looking at,” Eveland explained.
Overall she’s encouraging more participation from everybody.
“Residents and business owners, that everybody speaks up, that they come to meetings, that they reach out to alderpersons and myself. It’s important that we have that dialogue, that we have that line of communication open and that people utilize that, so I really encourage people to do that.”
Eveland adds that it’s not just suggestions or criticisms city leaders are looking for, but they also want to hear things they’re doing right as well.
