Topic Update: Fahr Lands – East St. Paul
Our first topic in Manitoba has recently been updated. The Fahr Group believes that the community engagement process is crucial to the development of a new subdivision in East St. Paul, near Winnipeg, Manitoba. They want their proposed neighbourhoods to reflect a shared vision of the community. To achieve this vision, Fahr Group is engaging current residents through open forums to better understand their needs and wants for this growing community and share more about their plans.
Developers are often criticized with not providing clear or enough information during the development process and PlaceSpeak gives the Fahr Group the tool to provide clear credible information. Using PlaceSpeak, Fahr Group is welcoming community input that will help with NIMBY residents and will allow for community engagement 24 hours a day rather than the traditional open house format.
