Public Engagement

The Town of Coaldale values the community’s input on matters of civic importance and recognizes the critical role meaningful dialogue plays in decision-making processes undertaken by  Council. Over the years, we have been refining our robust engagement process to ensure that we are utilizing the most sophisticated and effective methods for distributing information and collecting public input on important matters including major projects and financial priorities.

As outlined in the Town's Public Participation Policy No. C-017-0618 (2017), we closely follow the International Association of Public Particpation's (IAP2) guidelines for any public participation process to make sure we execute the best and most current engagement practices.

Community Dialogue Toolkit

The Community Dialogue Toolkit is intended to help facilitate community engagement and public participation between the Town of Coaldale, public and private organizations, and all members of the community. Public participation is essential for a healthy community because it creates opportunities for meaningful discussion and feedback. Inviting community members and stakeholders to participate in the conversation about important decisions also increases the legitimacy of the outcome and provides a deeper understanding of the lived impacts the outcome will have on key stakeholders. The Community Dialogue Toolkit is designed to support engagement opportunities and help create a roadmap for effective conversation.
