Media Release - Town of Lincoln launches online engagement site, Speak Up Lincoln

Lincoln, ON - (Feb. 25, 2021) – As part of its effort to increase the level of communications and engagement with Lincoln residents and businesses, the Town has developed a new digital communication and engagement platform called Speak Up Lincoln.

Speak Up Lincoln will enhance existing engagement opportunities and provide a place where community members can get updates and provide input on important Town of Lincoln projects and initiatives, at a time and place that is convenient for them.

“We are excited to launch this new platform and offer community members an opportunity to share their feedback on timely initiatives and let us know what matters most to them,” said Lincoln Mayor Sandra Easton. “This is just one of the ways we are supporting Council's priority of being a Vibrant Community by enhancing citizen engagement and participation, and identifying opportunities for greater transparency, accountability and inclusion.”

This online engagement hub provides a centralized location for information and opportunities to share feedback. Here, community members can learn about, track, and review Town projects and issues that are important to them.

Complementing the Town's offline participation opportunities, Speak Up Lincoln brings the conversations together in one central place. Through this online engagement tool, the Town is expanding the horizons on how the community and Town staff talk and share ideas about projects and concepts. The Town is launching the site at a time when in-person engagement has not been possible due to pandemic restrictions and the need to prevent community spread of COVID-19.

“Providing an online space for public engagement is especially important as the pandemic continues and we are unable to hold in-person meetings for the foreseeable future,” added Lincoln Mayor Sandra Easton.

Community members are invited to share comments on specific projects and identify which areas or topics they would like to learn more about and provide feedback on. More projects will be added to the site in line with corporate and Council priorities, annual budgets and the need for public feedback.
