There is a new survey out to help residents of High River measure quality of life in our community.

Kalie Mosig with Our High River says this year they will be gathering information from citizens, agencies and businesses that will allow them to better understand how our community has changed since 2016.

"We are also looking to identify what our community currently would like to prioritize and celebrate,” said Mosig, research and content lead for the project.

The data is used by the Town and other agencies and community groups when planning for the future and addressing current citizen needs.

“We know of some projects launched in High River have been influenced by the 2016 Vital Signs data. For example, one community priority identified was increasing the availability of additional affordable mental health services . FCSS was able to utilize this information to support starting Foothills Community Counselling," said Mosig.     

This is the 3rd year Vital Signs will be used to measure quality of life in High River.

The survey provides a checkup on the community in the areas of connection, environment, expression, health and well-being, lifelong learning, livability, safety and security, and thriving populations.

The survey will be available at the Community Cafe on May 9th.

The survey can be found online starting on May 14th at OURHIGHRIVER.COM or HIGHRIVER.CA and takes around 30 minutes to complete.

Print copies of the survey are also available at FCSS and can be returned to FCSS or the Town of High River’s main office.

The deadline to complete the survey is June 4th and the report will be released in October 2018.

Participants who complete the survey can enter to win one of five $50.00 gift certificates to a local business of their choice.
