What do you want to see happen in North Delta?

A North Delta Community Goals Survey is now available online for residents and businesses to complete as part of the North Delta Area Plan Review that is now underway.

Survey responses will be used to develop the draft vision and goals for the North Delta Area Plan.

“We want to hear from the community on what their vision is for the future of North Delta,” said Mayor Lois Jackson. “This is a community plan, so participation from the public on what they see as priorities for North Delta is essential.”

The Corporation of Delta is using the online community consultation platform PlaceSpeak to conduct the survey; registration is free and all information collected is private. Go to https://www.placespeak.com/topic/561/north-delta-area-plan-community-goals-survey/ to take the survey.

The North Delta Community Goals survey is just one of many options for residents to participate in the North Delta Area Plan Review. Staff have been soliciting feedback via the travelling North Delta Area Plan Roadshow booth at local events such as the Tour de Delta and the upcoming Boundary Bay Airshow. A Youth Photography and Poster Contest is also underway to engage youth in the area plan process.

Opportunities for individuals to join a citizen circle and partake in detailed discussions on issues important to them are also available – visit www.corp.delta.bc.ca/northdelta for more information.

A Public Ideas Fair will be held on Sept. 19 to publicly present the draft vision and goals for the North Delta Area Plan and to obtain input from citizens on building strategies and the creation of a draft plan.

For more information, contact Thomas Leathem, director of community planning and development, at 604-946-3381 or e-mail northdelta@corp.delta.bc.ca
