Some Lake Country residents to receive community survey

District of Lake Country looks for feedback from its residents

Randomly selected households in Lake Country will be receiving a 31-question community survey in the mail this week.

“Residents’ input on programs and services offered by the District of Lake Country will help the municipality make important decisions on future community investment,” said community development manager, Jamie McEwan. “The results of the community survey will also contribute to the district having a better understanding of the values and priorities of residents.”

The deadline for returning the completed survey is May 29, and respondents to the mail survey will be entered in a draw to win one of three prizes:

•$300 gift certificate to SECA Marine (for any product/service they offer)

•$100 gift certificate to Route’s Grill*

•$100 gift certificate to L’Isola Bella Italian Restaurant

The aim of the consultant, Discovery Research Ltd., is to receive at least 400 surveys from residents to include within the random sample, which will provide statistically valid data to help inform some future decisions of the District. In addition to the random sample, surveys will be available online and at Municipal Hall should any resident that doesn’t receive a mail survey wish to provide their feedback.  Results will be presented to Lake Country council in June.

“Council often gets the opportunity to hear from the community on very specific current issues, but in developing the 2015 Community Survey, it was important to them that it be kept concise yet broad enough to elicit feedback on a number of issues from roadways and transportation to recreational programs and facilities,” said McEwan.
