Our Future

I like the way Selwyn is today and like many do not want to see it change. It’s the reason I chose to live here and raise a family while engaging with our community. Whether it is climate, socio-economic, development, tourism etc. As a community we have a lot of work ahead of us to come together and integrate these changes as we navigate the issues of today while creating the future it for our children and theirs as well.

CORE PLATFORM

The future municipal council will need to serve its community as previous councils have with continued diligence for ongoing and future initiatives while supporting Township employees who are our frontline representatives and are ultimately tasked to implement and execute.

Prioritize keeping our tax rates the lowest in the county through fiscal management. Maintain our  infrastructure and assets with environmental upgrades and retrofits.

Attract small to medium sized businesses to invest in our community to create stable year-round employment opportunities that will support and sustain our local economy.

Advocate for affordable housing and ensure environmental issues are addressed on future housing developments requiring our emergency services to be adequately staffed and supported.
