City council is hosting a public input session for organizations who are looking for municipal funds and planning large projects that will leave a lasting impression in or on the community.

On Nov. 27, public and private organizers of such projects in 2016 or 2017 are invited to attend a session of council to pitch their ideas. The meeting will take place at 9 a.m. in the council chamber at Tom Davies Square.

Not sure if your project qualifies? Here’s the criteria the city is using:

The project must have a significant and lasting economic impact through job creation, investment or tourism;

Application for municipal funding for the project will happen in 2016 or 2017, through the municipal budget process;

The project must align with the strategic pillars of Council (Growth and economic development, Responsive, fiscally prudent open governance, Quality of life and place, and

Sustainable infrastructure); 

The project must enhance civic engagement and build social capital, for instance by enhancing community pride, health and well-being, diversity and safe communities.

To take part, complete and return the Large Project Presentation Form by Nov. 16 at noon.

The form can be found online at GreaterSudbury.ca/largeprojects, by calling 311, by email at clerks@greatersudbury.ca, or in person at the Clerk’s Office on the Second Floor of Tom Davies Square. 

Each group will have 20 minutes to present. Pre-registration is required. 

The Nov. 27 meeting is open to the public and will be live streamed at GreaterSudbury.ca.
