The Village of New Denver partnered with the Columbia Basin Rural Development Institute (RDI) at Selkirk College on an asset-based community development research project. This project included a survey of residents in New Denver and area, aiming to gain an understanding of resident satisfaction, factors influencing quality of life, perceptions of community well-being, and interest and ideas for future services and infrastructure. There was a good response rate with 261 valid responses, providing a reasonable representation of the community and allowing for estimation and prediction of residents’ views across the community as a whole.
A copy of the full report, which includes an executive summary and conclusions can be found HERE. We believe the results from this research are helpful for any organization who may be pursuing community and economic development initiatives in New Denver, Silverton, and the surrounding rural area.
If you have any questions regarding the research analysis and reporting, please contact Nadine Raynolds, Columbia Basin RDI: firstname.lastname@example.org or 250-365-1282.
