Rethinking Consultation

Read Sean Galloway, Liz Nield, and Dave Dilks' OPPI article entitled Rethinking Consultation: Community Engagement London-style.  The article discusses the Official Plan Review of the City of London and highlights achievements and lessons learned from the project.

Read it online at Ontario Professional Planners Institute March/April Issue 2014 : How Do We Engage the Public?

Excerpt: "[The] City of London
planners made a conscious decision to look at the official plan review process and community engagement in a completely different light. Rather than embarking on a traditional policy-driven, statutory review, we created ReThink London—an inclusive, community-driven conversation with Londoners about city-building and the future of our community."
