Columbia Basin Trust seeking public input

Citizens are asked to use online survey to rank ideas and help prioritize issues

The Columbia Basin Trust is seeking additional public input on the region's priorities.

The Columbia Basin Trust has been gathering citizen input on social, economic and environmental issues and have announced another key step in the process.

The public is being encouraged to visit www.cbt.org/engagement2013 by July 7, 2013 to delve even further into the priorities for the region.

“We had a terrific response for step one, with over 10,000 individual thoughts and ideas,” said Neil Muth, CBT President and CEO in a press release. “We got great, varied feedback on what the challenges and possible solutions are —  now we’re asking everyone, even if you weren’t able to participate in the first part, to show us your priorities from the ideas that were generated in your part of the Basin.”

The press release states that during the first step, Basin residents responded online to six open-ended questions. Now the public is being asked to review and rank the ideas they like the best.

Participant information is confidential and a final report will be shared with all participants.

“Over the coming months, we are renewing our social, economic and environmental strategic plans and we want to ensure we are considering a wide variety of opinions as we begin these and other planning efforts,” said Muth. “We value residents’ feedback as one of several inputs into these planning processes.”
