Sarnia-Lambton Economic Partnership Looking for Community Input

Sarnia-Lambton Economic Partnership - the Municipality's economic development partner - is looking for community feedback as they begin an update to their Economic Development Strategy. As part of the process, residents and the business community are invited to share their ideas about how to boost the local economy and enhance quality of life via a community and business survey.

The updated Economic Development Strategy will guide efforts to support and grow existing businesses and attract new residents and investments. It also aims to connect the dots to a broader community development action plan that enables job creation, including: placemaking, advanced broadband, housing choice and affordability, and more flexible commercial form and function for today's entrepreneurs needing more nimble solutions.

The survey is available on the Sarnia-Lambton Economic Partnership Website.
