Community Composting Survey

November 15, 2017  |  Community Events, News  |  Comments Off on Community Composting Survey

The Healthy Community Society of the North Slocan Valley is looking into the possibility of community composting. As part of our study we need to know about your composting habits, needs and desires and what barriers you currently find with the process. Organic waste creates, on average, 40% of the public waste stream and yet, if diverted from the landfill, can make a valuable product.  One survey per household is adequate.  The Healthy Community Society appreciates your feedback!  Deadline for submission is December 6th, 2017.

The link to the online survey can be found:  Community Compost Survey

If a paper copy is preferred, please download it here: Compost Survey Questions Final

Paper copies may be picked up at the Village of New Denver office.

Community Well-being Survey

The Village of New Denver, in partnership with the Columbia Basin Rural Development Institute (RDI) at Selkirk College, is conducting research on the well-being of our community with an interest in resident attraction and retention. This survey asks residents about quality of life and several aspects related to community services and livability in and around New Denver. While the survey is created to assist with community planning and decision-making by the Village of New Denver, residents of Silverton and Area H North are invited to share their views. Part-time residents are also encouraged to take the survey.

The survey will take about 15 minutes. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts!

Please take the online survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NewDenverArea. The survey is open from October 19 to November 13, 2017. Hardcopies are also available at the Village office.
