About 2020 Engagement
The Timmins 2020 Strategic Plan has the overall goal of making Timmins a better place to live, work, play and invest. To that end it is important to keep community members and stakeholders up to date. A big part of making the Timmins 2020 project successful is getting support, feedback, engagement and participation from community members, local partners, and stakeholders.
The project gets quite a bit of local support already but there is always room for more. The Timmins 2020 website gets 2,200 unique page views a month. Our Facebook page has over 2,500 Likes and has a 15% engagement rate. A 3% engagement is considered the standard for Facebook and that means that our community is becoming more and more interested in the projects associated with Timmins 2020.
We have distributed over 1000 copies of the Strategic Plan booklet. The Timmins 2020 Focus Newsletter has over 1,100 subscribers.
The Timmins 2020 Engagement project is an on-going project that will continue and change throughout the Timmins 2020 project.
There are a number of engagement initiatives and opportunities that are on-going. They include:
