Get Involved

As planning for enhancements for the Castlegar & District Community Complex (CDCC) has progressed, we have consulted with the community along the way. Residents from Area I, Area J, and Castlegar were consulted as part of the master planning process, and have been providing their input to help determine design priorities throughout this past year. Thank you to those who have already provided your feedback—your input is important and we appreciate your involvement.

The previous consultation was via a questionnaire, which was mailed to residents in summer 2017. The findings from this survey showed that two-thirds (67%) of respondents are in favour of a major enhancement to the CDCC. A single preferred option for the scope of the enhancements was not clearly identified, although twenty-eight percent (28%) favoured Option A and thirty-nine percent (39%) preferred Option B. Read more about Option A and Option B.

The Castlegar & District Recreation Commission wanted to get further community feedback about the potential expansion. To achieve this, in December 2017, residents were invited to complete a survey to provide further information about potential enhancements to the Castlegar & District Community Complex. This survey asked residents whether or not they would support Option B if asked in a referendum. The Recreation Commission focused on Option B because it received stronger support in the previous questionnaire. Survey results showed that 62% said they would support Option B, and 38% said they would not. The form and timing of a potential referendum will be considered by the Recreation Commission at their next meeting.

Thank you!

In early December 2017, all households were mailed an invitation to participate in the survey. Thank you to those residents who responded. Your participation is appreciated.
