Red Deer County outlined its next steps following the Community Well-being survey. Conducted throughout 2016, the Community Well-being survey asked for resident feedback on areas such as recreation, culture,and family support services available to residents of Red Deer County.The survey was mailed to approximately 8,900 households, with over 1,900 households responding. Following the survey, discussion groups were also conducted to allow for more detailed information to be gathered on the same topics.According to Mayor Jim Wood, “We were delighted with the response rate on this project. Having roughly 23% of households complete the survey gives us a very good insight into this diverse County. We have seen tremendous change in our population over the last ten years, and this survey reflects the changing needs of our ratepayers.”At the June 20 Council meeting, Council approved the recommendation to update the Community Services strategic plan. This will review Red Deer County’s role in important areas such as recreation, libraries, housing, transportation and family and community support services. Results from the survey will be used to prioritize new programming, etc.
