Task forces take community input to new levels

Starting in 2006, the City of Spruce Grove took a new approach to community input. Citing changing community dynamics and the complex nature of the challenges and issues facing Spruce Grove and its residents, the City decided to create subject-specific Task Forces, and developed a Task Force Policy.

The move allowed for broader and more varied public input as the multi-disciplined Task Forces partnered members of the public, council members, staff advisors and a full range of specialists and professional advisors.

Task Forces are only formed when there are important and complex community initiatives to be explored, where public participation is critical to success.
