Community well-being Survey for Red Deer County

  • Oct. 17, 2016 3:33 p.m.

Red Deer County ensures that recreation, culture, and individual and family support programs and services are available to all residents.

Beginning Oct. 17th, the County will be conducting a Community Well-being Survey to gauge the satisfaction levels around a number of different recreation, culture, and family support services.

The last consultation process of this type was in 2004, and information gathered at that time has helped to drive decision- making for over a decade. Much has changed over that time, and now it is time to find out what residents want the County’s recreation and culture priorities to be over the next five to 10 years.

According to Community Services Manager Jo-Ann Symington, “The Community Well-being Survey is a vital tool in assessing the needs of the community for recreation, culture, and support services. The responses to this survey will shape Red Deer County’s plans in these areas for years to come. It is a great opportunity for residents to express their views on a wide range of topics that impact them directly.”

Questionnaires will be mailed out to every household in the County. Each package will include a letter of introduction, a questionnaire, and a postage-paid return envelope. The survey will also be available online. If a resident does not receive a package, they are encouraged to contact the County office and one will be sent to them.

All the information given through the survey will be confidential. Combined responses will be shared with County council, and will help to set priorities for recreation, culture, and individual and family support services for the coming years.
