What will getinvolvedlethbridge.ca do for me?

- It is a great way for you to keep up-to-date and provide your input.
- You can view comments and feedback that other residents are providing and respond with your own views.
- It's an opportunity to participate without having to attend a public engagement session in person.
- It's a way to still participate even if you missed a scheduled open house!
