Nearly 800 respond to recreation survey

In total over 790 responses were received, which exceeded the expectations of the RDCK and consulting team.

Earlier this year, a survey was sent to households in Castlegar and areas I and J. Information gathered from the questionnaire will be used along with other research and consultation to develop a recreation master plan. The master plan will help guide how recreation (and related) services are delivered in coming years.

In total over 790 responses were received, which exceeded the expectations of the RDCK and consulting team.

This level of response assures that the survey findings are statistically significant and representative of the area.

A web survey was also fielded which received nearly 100 responses.

The level of response is a clear demonstration of the community interest in recreation services in the area. The project steering committee, consulting team and Regional District of Central Kootenay thank those households that participated.

Households that completed the survey were also provided with the opportunity to enter a draw for a $100 Canadian Tire Castlegar gift certificate. This draw has been conducted and the winner notified.

 

Now that valuable information has been collected from households, local groups, and other community stakeholders, and has been analyzed along with other forms of research, a draft master plan will be developed and available for public review in the upcoming months.
