NPCA Looks to the public for new Strategic Plan feedback
WELLAND, Ont. (April 5, 2018)–The Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority (NPCA) has started the process of developing its 2018-2021 Strategic Plan, and is looking to the public for feedback on prioritizing the six Areas of Focus it has identified.
“The Board of Directors has been clear that it is vital to them, as they move through the strategic planning process, that we are providing people the opportunity to let us know which of the areas of focus are most important to them,” said NPCA Community Engagement Manager, Renée Bisson.
The NPCA Board of Directors engaged Performance Concepts in 2012, when it undertook its first-ever Strategic Plan, which was completed in 2017. Performance Concepts worked with the Board of Directors to draft six Areas of Focus for public consideration. The Areas of Focus are:
- Watershed Management: Improving Water Quality and Aquatic Habitats
- Planting 1 Million Trees & 3 Million Native Plants: Rebuilding the Tree Canopy
- Acquiring Ecologically Sensitive Land & Enhancing Our Existing Parks
- Improving Services for Park Users
- Continuing Internal Management Improvements
- Improved Communications: Better Conversations about Conservation
There are several ways to provide your feedback: Visit getinvolved.npca.ca

- Tuesday, April 10 at Lowbanks Community Centre 6:30 p.m. Register here for this Town Hall.
- Tuesday, April 17 at Glanbrook Municipal Building 6:30 p.m. Register here for this Town Hall.
