In celebration of National Economic Development Week, the Sarnia-Lambton Economic Partnership is hosting a Community Open House on Tuesday, May 7 from 4 p.m. — 6 p.m. The event will take place at SLEP’s offices in the Western Sarnia-Lambton Research Park at 1086 Modeland Road.
During the event, residents of Sarnia-Lambton, including businesses who are members of the Sarnia Lambton Chamber of Commerce, will be able to engage with staff, learn about economic development initiatives and why they are important to the community.
Residents are encouraged to share with staff members ideas and opinions as to what they would like to see in their communities.
“The Sarnia-Lambton Economic Partnership is pleased to celebrate National Economic Development Week and its importance to the growth of all municipalities in the region,” said Stephen Thompson, SLEP’s CEO.
“This is a fantastic chance for the entire community to see what the team and its partners are working on daily to support the growth of Lambton County, as well as provide feedback on what they want to see in their communities,” he added.
The Open House will also be a chance for the Economic Partnership to showcase the work it does with its various community partners and how collaboration between a variety of organizations benefits the Sarnia-Lambton area.
The Sarnia-Lambton Economic Partnership will also be celebrating National Economic Development Week by hosting a joint information session with the County of Lambton’s Planning Department, as well as City of Sarnia planning and economic development staff.
This session will provide an opportunity for each group to update each other on ongoing initiatives, future endeavours, and the sharing of ideas as they continue to elevate the features that make Lambton County an ideal place to live, work, and raise a family.
Visitor parking is available in the roundabout outside of the Economic Partnership office, while overflow parking is also available in the East Parking Lot.
The Sarnia-Lambton Economic Partnership is located on the ground floor of Building 1050 at the Western Sarnia-Lambton Research Park.
