The FDC Economic Development Commission in partnership with Community Futures Greenstone is conducting an Economic Development Transition Project. Following meetings and workshops with the three local Councils and local businesses, sessions are being held seeking public input from Flin Flon, Creighton and Denare Beach. At last night’s public meeting Colleen Bond from EDCD Consulting explained they are looking for community ideas on short and long term economic development. She said once they’ve collected all of that data they combine it with the other research that they have done with regards to the demographics on the area, current trends in economic development, best practices in other communities, and then along with the input they receive this week they will start to develop and indentify common themes and from there develop specific strategies for moving forward with economic development.
Consultations continue this week with community stakeholders with a list of meetings available at www.flinflononline.com and click on city of Flin Flon notice board with a link to their community survey on the Town of Creighton website.
