A Successful Open House to Consult with the YRC Project Area Businesses...



The first Business Open House was held at the Keswick Ridge Community Hall 5:00 – 7:00 pm on May 4, 2017.  During the week prior to the Open House, over 150 information packages and personal invitations were handed to business leaders throughout the YRC Project area.  

Presentation materials at the Open House were prepared to address main topics including:

Boundaries
Taxation
Communication
Feedback
Frequently Asked Questions/Answers
Rural Plans
Right-to-Vote


Video clips featuring Mayor Doug Munn from Upper Miramichi Rural Community were aired to several groups attending, together with prepared YRC information handout materials specially designed for the business audience.  

There was a high level of interest and engagement throughout the meeting time.  Most of the attendees were aware of earlier YRC information sessions or published materials.  Feedback and contact information sheets were collected from participants and a follow-up questionnaire will be sent to all those who provided their email contact information. 

More information for YRC business will be presented at the YRC Project Open Houses that are scheduled for the evenings of July 11 (at the Riverside Resort) and July 12 (at the Keswick Valley Recreation Centre), following the release of the YRC Preliminary Feasibility Study report. Each of those Open Houses will be from 7 to 9 pm.  Please mark your calendars.
