Opportunity to get involved  

Community members are encouraged to get involved by speaking at a Roundtable meeting by providing a deputation about the topic featured that month.

“I encourage members of the community to provide a deputation at an upcoming meeting to share their suggestions and ideas on how Norfolk County can move forward with initiatives to achieve greater affordability for residents now and into the future,” said Norfolk Mayor Amy Martin. “Roundtables like this one are an effective way to bring diverse perspectives forward to improve conditions for all our residents.”
