Members are Sidney residents and friends who want to be informed and involved in shaping the community we live in. We are dedicated to enhancing transparency and accountability of municipal governance and advocating for adherence to the Official Community Plan (OCP). We believe in respectful,  constructive discussion about municipal affairs in the Town of Sidney.

What We Do

  1. We present speakers about topics that are important to the Sidney community.
  2. We attend Sidney Town Council and Committee of the Whole meetings and send a summary of the proceedings to our members
  3. We find out as much as we can about issues the Town is dealing with and share that information with our members.
  4. We bring the concerns of our members to the attention of Town Council. This often takes the form of asking the Town to consult with residents and/or to provide more information.
