Sustainable Campbell River survey to help set future directions

The City of Campbell River has released a new survey for the Sustainable Official Community Plan and is asking you to speak to the community’s future

The City of Campbell River has released a new survey for the Sustainable Official Community Plan and is asking you to speak to the community’s future.

People who complete the survey by April 4 will have their name entered in an early bird prize draw to win one of two day passes to Mount Washington.

The Directions and Choices Survey will help set policy directions for Campbell River’s Sustainable Official Community Plan (SOCP). The survey questions are built on input gathered from SOCP events held over the past six months. The events included two major public forums, community outreach events, a comprehensive survey and number of stakeholder workshops. Input from hundreds of community members has been summarized and crafted into a framework of future directions and choices.

The survey asks the public to help make choices for the future regarding land use, social well-being, economic development, agriculture and the environment.

“Once complete, the Sustainable Official Community Plan will be the City’s most comprehensive policy document and will be used to inform Council decision making,” says Mayor Charlie Cornfield. “As we are nearing the final stages of the document’s creation, survey responses will provide input that will directly influence the nature of policy development.”

Paper copies of the survey are also available at City Hall, the Sportsplex and the Community Centre.  The last day to complete the survey is April 15. City staff will also be at retail outlets in the community providing paper copies of the survey.
