SURVEY – A NEW STRATEGIC PLAN FOR THE MEREDITH CENTRE
The Meredith Centre is a multi-purpose, community, recreational and cultural centre, located off Old Chelsea Road, adjacent to the Chelsea soccer fields and Chelsea Elementary School. The facility officially opened on September 29, 2012, and is now embarking on creating a new strategic plan. Over the next six months, we are following a five-step methodology towards creating a strategic plan that belongs to the community.
The following short survey is the first step on this journey: http://fluidsurveys.com/s/meredith-centre-EN/

SONDAGE – UN NOUVEAU PLAN STRATÉGIQUE POUR LE CENTRE MEREDITH -
Le Centre Meredith est un centre communautaire, sportif et culturel à vocations multiples, situé aux abords du chemin Old Chelsea, à proximité des terrains de soccer et de l’école primaire de Chelsea. L’ouverture officielle du Centre a eu lieu le 29 septembre 2012, et le moment est maintenant venu d’élaborer un nouveau plan stratégique. Au cours des six prochains mois, nous suivrons une méthodologie en cinq étapes, qui nous permettra d’établir un plan stratégique qui appartient à la communauté.
Le bref sondage qui suit représente la première étape de ce cheminement : http://fluidsurveys.com/s/centre-meredith-FR/
Ce sondage sera ouvert jusqu’à 23h59 le 2 décembre.
