The City of Red Deer is going virtual in its efforts to reach more residents the community. For the first time, the city will host a “tweetchat” on Twitter on Thursday from 3 to 4 p.m.

Earlier this month, the city launched Amplify Red Deer to improve the scope, quality, and efficiency of its interactions with residents.

To join the conversation, you must have a Twitter account and follow @cityofreddeer or use the hashtag #AmplifyRD. The @cityofreddeer was will ask a series of questions, marking each one with Q (question) and the question number. Mark your answer with A (for answer) and the question number.

During the tweetchat, the city will not respond to tweets that do not pertain to Amplify Red Deer.

Five focus groups are also scheduled next week that will allow residents to provide input on the development of the city’s new public engagement strategy.

The focus groups will be held on Monday (10 a.m. and 7 p.m.), Tuesday (7 p.m.) and Wednesday (10 a.m. and 7 p.m.) in the boardroom at the G.H. Dawe Community Centre (56 Holt St.).

Residents who are unable to attend can provide input by filling out the online survey or by hosting a small group discussions with friends, family, neighbours, colleagues, or volunteers using the Amplify Red Deer workbook as a guide and submitting the results to the city.

To register, contact the Communications and Strategic Planning Department at 403-342-8147 or communications@reddeer.ca.

Results of Amplify Red Deer will be summarized in a report and presented to Red Deer city council for consideration by early 2014.

For more information or to download the workbook, visit www.reddeer.ca/amplify.
