What would make Ashhurst the best place to live by 2040? How do we take action to make that happen?
On 15 August, a group of 20 participants who care about the future of Ashhurst joined a workshop to help develop a community vision. Notes from that workshop are now available online.
On 24 August, everyone is again invited (regardless of attendance at the first workshop) to join in another facilitated community gathering to develop the town vision and, in particular, look at ways we can take action. This meeting will be on Wednesday 24 August, 7:00 p.m. start at the Ashhurst Community Library (64 Bamfield St., corner of Cambridge Ave.)
We also encourage all those with a connection to Ashhurst to take part in a survey, available online here, or in paper at the Ashhurst Community Library and delivered with theAugust Village Voice.
Keep your eyes out for PNCC follow-up consultation with a focus on infrastructure, details TBD. Steps are also being taken to engage the children and youth of Ashhurst.
Why are we doing this?
In 1999 and 2006, the Ashhurst community came together in facilitated workshops to create a shared vision for community development. Various community projects arose directly out of those workshops. Many of the suggested actions are now in place. We believe that when communities come together to share their dreams, we can work together to make great things happen.
