"Click With Markham": Markham Mayor & Council Launch Online Public Consultation Program

MARKHAM, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 7, 2007) - Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti and Town Council are seeking community input on six proposed areas of strategic focus through an innovative online public consultation process during November. "Click with Markham" is a multi-media online experience offering Town residents an opportunity to make their opinions count during Council's strategic planning process.

"This is the chance for all Markham residents to help us develop our strategic plan and make sure we are on the right track," said Mayor Frank Scarpitti. "We're looking forward to receiving a lot of valuable input - either through our innovative online experience or by choosing the mail, fax or phone-in options we're offering."

All those who live and work in Markham can participate by visiting, from November 8 to 30. Information will be available in several languages on the website or by contacting the Town at 905-477-5530. An information package with a questionnaire and postage-paid return envelope is also being delivered to all Markham residences.

"The best results occur when the community is engaged," said Mayor Scarpitti. "By visiting Click with Markham, they can give us their views on six priorities - Growth Management; Transportation/Transit; Environment; Municipal Services; Parks, Recreation, Culture and Library Master Plan/Public Safety and Diversity."

All Town of Markham residents completing the questionnaire will be entered in a draw for a number of valuable rewards. The Click with Markham website uses leading-edge survey software in a new way to provide an engaging experience.
