VISION ÉVANGÉLINE – The Rural Municipalities of Abram-Village and Wellington, working with the Conseil scolaire-communautaire Évangeline, are conducting a Municipal Growth Management  study to examine the creation of a regional municipal unit which could also include the surrounding unincorporated communities.  Brighter Community Planning & Consulting will be working with the local working committee to complete this study between January and March of this year.

The Growth Management Study is just beginning.  A very important part of this study is consulting with local residents and businesses, and we are beginning our consultation with this brief survey.  We hope you will take a few minutes to respond to the questions, to help us better understand your community and its future local government needs.

In February there will be an Open House and  in March a workshop where more details  of this study will be presented and individuals will have a chance to provide more comment.  Information on these sessions will be available shortly.  This survey will help us prepare for these meetings.


The winning vendor for our Municipal Growth Management Study is: Brighter Community Planning and Consulting for total fee of $49,360 plus H.S.T.
