Engage! City of St. John’s Task Force

The new Engage! St. John’s Task Force will allow citizens to be involved in building a new approach to public engagement – one that facilitates dialogue with the right people, using the right tools, at the right time on topics that matter.

The City and the Engage Task Force will create a how-to-guide which will outline the guidelines and policies that will govern the engagement process from information sharing to active participation.

The Task Force will begin its work in early spring 2014 and finish its final report with recommendations early summer 2014.

The Engage! St. John’s Task Force will be responsible for:

  • Reviewing materials from other jurisdictions to better understand the public engagement process.

  • Developing a proposed public engagement policy document with guiding principles for engagement for the City of St. John’s.

  • Identifying effective engagement tools and approaches for consideration.

  • Presenting draft and final recommendations.
