District seeks input

The District of Port Hardy is looking for user feedback on the Recreation Centre.

PORT HARDY—The District of Port Hardy launched a survey recently to ask “What types of Recreation would you like to see offered in Port Hardy?”

Thomas Kervin, a summer student at the District, has led the pilot project with Patti Smedley, the District’s Economic Development & Community Coordinator. “The purpose of the survey is to take an inventory of what recreation programs community members are currently participating in, as well as gauge interest for new programming,” explained Kervin.

“Council would like to improve and add to the recreational experiences of our citizens and wants to hear from the community on where the gaps are and what they would like to see,” said Mayor Bev Parnham. “Introducing enhanced services and new programs will move Port Hardy towards being a healthier and more accessible community.”

The survey results will guide the District in future programming and budget allocations, in order to best meet the community’s needs.

The survey questionnaire is available electronically on the District’s website, www.porthardy.ca, and in print form at the Municipal Hall, the Chamber of Commerce, the Recreation Centre, Rainbow Country Daycare, and the North Island Gazette.

The questionnaire will be available until September 1, 2013, when a prize draw will be held for those who participated in the survey.

For more information on the survey or for a complete list of prizes visit www.porthardy.ca.
