Building a Better Brockton -- that's the goal of the municipality's strategic plan.
Mayor David Inglis says it will serve as a road map for the municipality over the next 25 years.
Consultant James Knott says the first priority is to get input from residents.
Knott feels the best way to engage the community is by doing it on their terms -- and that means going to the public instead of hosting public meetings.
Knott says he will set up tables where people go -- places like grocery stores, community festivals and sporting events.
Knott says he will also use social media such as Facebook and Twitter.
Knott also plans to use the Brockton Buzz -- an online community newsletter to spark interest and discussion in the matter.
Knott says he wants to know what residents love about Brockton, what their vision is for the future and what they would change if they could.
The draft strategic plan will come before Council in October for approval.
