Port Hardy official community plan contributors prize winners announced

Josh Junglas, Melissa Penney and Rob Ramchuk have been selected winners in the Port Hardy Official Community Plan survey contest, the District of Port Hardy announced last week.

“We received a total of 217 completed surveys from community residents and would like to acknowledge this contribution from the community as well as to announce the three survey winners,” said Kelsey Milne, assistant planner.

Residents were invited beginning in December to fill out the online surveys as part of the District’s efforts to get input from a broad spectrum of the community for the community-based OCP.

Those who missed out on the survey still have an avenue for input into the plan, when the OCP focus group visits Port Hardy April 5-6. The visit will include a coffeehouse discussion on social sustainability, titled A Discussion on Our Social Future, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Apr. 5, at Market Street Cafe.

In last week’s random prize draw of survey respondents, Ramchuk won an iPod, Penney won a season Recreation Pass from the District, and Junglas picked up a $50 gift certificate to Sporty’s.

“The town is actually trying to get our opinion and that’s what democracy is all about,” said Junglas, a secondary school student.

Survey results are being formatted into a report that will be used as a platform from which to initiate more in-depth deliberation at community events, Milne said.

“The Focus team would like to thank everyone who took the time to fill out the survey and provide valuable feedback and input into this important planning process,” she said.
