REIMAGINE NANAIMO: Calling for community representatives

Summary

The City is seeking organizations and individuals who are willing to help spread the word about REIMAGINE NANAIMO through their networks. Volunteer community representatives will be invited to learn more about REIMAGINE NANAIMO and to work with the City’s project team to identify how best to bring their networks and neighbourhoods together to participate.
