These community committees got their start with the public Strategic Planning meetings that were held in 2017.  The committees consist of one Village of Empress Councillor and members of the public who are interested.

Their purpose is to think up ideas for how to develop or make better use of these resources, then create proposals (including plans, budgets, and fundraising), then finally present those proposals to the Village of Empress Council.
