Fall 2018 Newsletter Survey Responses

  • Community Information

In June 2018, Summer Village Council directed Municipal Planning Services (MPS) to help facilitate updating the Summer Village of Pelican Narrows Land Use Bylaw. One of the first steps in the process of reviewing a Land Use Bylaw is to collect ideas, comments, and suggestions from local residents. On August 27, 2018, a public open house was held to discuss this project with residents, and gather feedback on some focus issues. Recognizing that not every resident was able to attend the meeting, a survey was distributed to local residents in the fall of 2018, asking for feedback on focused questions affecting land use in Pelican Narrows. Attached are the responses to this survey. The response rate for this survey was extremely high compared to other communities Municipal Planning Services (MPS) has worked with in the past!

We would like to thank everyone for their phone calls, emails, mail-in submissions. NOTE: Answers were not provided to all questions – as such, the response totals vary slightly from question to question. With this information, we will work with Summer Village Administration to identify opportunities to update the Land Use Bylaw to reflect community input. When a draft updated Land Use Bylaw is prepared in Spring 2019 following Summer Village Council and Administration’s review, a second public open house will be held to present the proposed changes to local residents, landowners, and visitors. Notification for this open house has been posted as of February 6, 2019.
