Apology owed for loss of focus

To the residents of Port Hardy:

To the residents of Port Hardy:

On behalf of Focus, we apologize for the incorrect date that was published in the promotional material for the Official Community Plan (OCP) event, “Community Vision Session” that took place on Tuesday, January 25, 2011. Local participation is a key component to the development of any community-based document and so this event will be rescheduled for those residents who missed this meeting. Your valued contributions will be used to develop a document that truly reflects the unique needs, wants, desires and ideas of the people who live, work and play in Port Hardy; providing a long-term vision for the future with the means to achieve it.

There will also be many upcoming opportunities for Port Hardy residents to be involved in the OCP process. We are scheduling another visit to Port Hardy at the end of February when we will provide more opportunities for residents to participate. Event details will be provided to the community in various ways including the North Island Gazette, and the Port Hardy OCP webpage found at www.porthardy.ca.
