The Essex Region Conservation Authority is looking to hear from the public as it sets out to update its Strategic Plan.

“We want to hear what Windsor/Essex residents think are the most important environmental challenges facing our community, and how we can all work together to be part of the solution,” explains Danielle Breault Stuebing, ERCA’s Director of Community Outreach Services. “We have to look at how to best engage our community in environmental sustainability.”

ERCA’s programs and priorities are guided by this plan, which was first developed in 1995 with broad input from the Windsor-Essex community, and most recently updated in 2011.

Since its inception, ERCA’s Strategic Plan has identified the initiatives to be implemented in striving to achieve the community vision: To achieve a sustainable environment with healthy watersheds, highlighted by clean creeks and rivers, and Great Lakes, thriving natural areas, productive agricultural lands, and vibrant places.

“ERCA is hoping to collect significant input from the community through this survey, as well as a Conservation Conversation with stakeholders and a Regional Roundtable, which will bring together CAOs of a variety of regional agencies,” Breault Stuebing added. “We recognize that people’s time is valuable, so have been diligent in creating a survey that gets to the most pressing questions in less than ten minutes.” The survey can be found on ERCA’s website at www.erca.org.
