Seeking Input on White City’s Future
Town Conducting On-line Survey of area Residents and Businesses
Being one of the fastest growing communities in Canada comes with both blessings and challenges. As a result, the town of White City is developing a strategic vision and long-term plan for the future of the community and is launching a broad public consultation process.
White City Mayor Bruce Evans said the first step in seeking input from local residents and businesses is with a short on-line survey, launched today and open until April 9th.
“We live in a great community and the town of White City wants feedback from residents to help guide the decisions on how we best continue to improve the services and amenities we offer now and, in the future,” Evans said. “We think it’s time to continue our discussions about the future of White City and the possibility for White City and Emerald Park to be one urban community.”
The town has retained the services of NRG Research Group, an independent Canadian based research company to ensure the survey is administered in a methodologically sound and confidential manner.
Door to door canvassers will deliver an information card to residential and business addresses in White City, Emerald Park and the adjacent subdivisions of Scott/Deneve, Park Meadow Estates and Meadow Ridge Estates to promote survey participation.
“We are interested in broad community feedback because the growth in the immediate area does have an impact on town services,” Evans said. “We want to develop a vision statement and future growth plan that will benefit our general community and input from residents and businesses on issues such as recreation facilities, transportation, housing, education and governance is important.”
“There is tremendous potential for continued growth and opportunities in our community and this is a chance for area residents to help shape our future.”
Once the vision statement and community development proposals are completed, there will be further scheduled public consultations in the community to solicit feedback and support.
