Jump in, Kawartha Lakes! Municipality launches new engagement platform

Kawartha Lakes – It’s your turn to jump in! Kawartha Lakes residents are invited to get involved in shaping the municipality using a new online engagement tool. Jump In, Kawartha Lakes is being piloted in 2019, starting with the opportunity to weigh in on the Strategic Plan 2020-2023. The platform offers a convenient way for residents to become informed and provide feedback via surveys, polls, idea forums and interactive maps. Join the conversation at www.jumpinkawarthalakes.ca.

Jump In is an accessible, informative and fun way to get residents involved with the projects taking place across all areas of local government – from road repairs and budgeting to arts, culture and recreation initiatives,” commented Cheri Davidson, Manager of Communications, Advertising and Marketing. “An online platform adds a convenient, 24-7 option for residents who can’t attend daytime Council meetings or open houses to learn more and have their say on topics of interest.”

While the platform will be home to many projects in the future, the first large-scale project on Jump In is the 2020-2023 Strategic Plan. The Strategic Plan is a collaboration involving Council, staff and residents. The Plan will guide and focus the direction of the municipality and its major projects over the next four years.

“Open communication and engagement with our residents is a priority for the municipality and Council,” added CAO Ron Taylor. “The residents and businesses of Kawartha Lakes have outstanding ideas, opinions and lived experiences. We want to capitalize on these local talents and perspectives, and Jump In is the platform to do so.”
