“It is so important to listen to our citizens and get them engaged proactively and productively with the City. This new tool will enhance our ability to connect and collaborate with everyone in our community.” - Mayor Ian Boddy

The City has launched Our City Owen Sound, a new community engagement platform that helps residents get informed, involved, and share ideas on City projects and initiatives.

Our City Owen Sound, hosted by Bang the Table, provides a digital space where users can get information about City initiatives, and share feedback and ideas on issues that matter to them.

It includes polls, surveys, forums, maps and more to enhance two-way communication between the City and its residents that anyone with internet can access from their home.

The first opportunities available on the site include the City’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Strategy, Kelso Beach at Nawash Park Master Plan, Waste Management Strategy, and Community Engagement Review.  Any personal information collected on the site is kept in compliance with the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. For more information, please refer to the Privacy Policy.  Our City Owen Sound is moderated 24/7 by an impartial expert global moderation team provided by Bang the Table. For more information, see the Etiquette and Moderation page.

Join the conversation by registering today at ourcity.owensound.ca.  You can also subscribe to project updates that will be delivered straight to your inbox.
