From January to April 2018, the Village will be creating a strategy and implementation plan that will guide economic development initiatives and decision-making in Cumberland over the next five years.
How Can You Get Involved?
There are two main opportunities for community involvement:
1. Community & Business Survey
We want to hear from you about the direction that the strategy should take!
As part of the first round of engagement, spend about 10 minutes on an online community and business survey before it closes on February 18, 2018.
Printed copies are available at the Village office. You can also print the survey and return it to the Village office by February 18, 2018.
2. Community Planning Forum
Watch for more information about the forum which will take place in March 2018.
