City seeks the voice of the People
The City of Vancouver is calling for a wider array of voices to respond to an online survey that will help inform the city-wide plan, also known as the Vancouver Plan.
So far, the majority of responses received have been from English speakers over 40 without young children. Feedback has also been high from people between 20 and 29.
In addition to English, the survey has been translated into traditional Chinese, simplified Chinese, Punjabi and Tagalog.
Questions range from participants’ hopes and fears for future generations to what they think is the city’s most urgent issue. Information such as survey-takers’ age, gender and postal code is also collected.
To date, about 4,000 people have filled out the survey, which launched in late November and closes at the end of February. Staff hope to hear from at least 6,000.
We encourage members of FCRA and non-members alike to complete the survey by jumping online here.
