There's still time to participate in the Westpark and Southfort neighbourhood survey. Earlier this month, the City of Fort Saskatchewan invited residents of Westpark and Southfort to have their say about the future development of the areas. Long Range Planner, Janel Smith, explained that the surveys are a requirement through the Government of Alberta Municipalities act but also expressed that the City of Fort Saskatchewan values residents opinion.
Smith says these surveys give a more current update on development plans and helps open the city to new ideas from residence response. About 300 surveys have been returned which to Smith, is much more than expected.
There is an added incentive for residents in Westpark and Southfort. The City of Fort Saskatchewan will giveaway an Ipad to a lucky resident of the areas that has completed the neighbourhood survey. Deadline to submit a survey is October 31st, 2012
Surveys were mailed to the residents of Westpark and SouthFort but you can still find the survey online at fortsask.ca. If you're not a resident of Westpark or Southfort but would still like to have your opinion heard, you can contact the Long Range Planner, Janel Smith, by email firstname.lastname@example.org or Phone 780-992-6243
