What We Heard Report

August 24, 2021

Our What We Heard Report, summarizing our June engagement, is now available. We want to thank the entire community for filling out the Community Circles Kits and survey, engaging with the Thought Exchange platform, and coming out to learn more at our in-person events.

The Community Circles Kits allowed us to get to know you better and learn where the priorities lie for the citizens of Grand Forks. We received a variety of feedback on key themes, and it is easy to see that community members in Grand Forks value having a tight-knit community rooted in nature. Being a smaller community, fostering a sense of connectedness where neighbours and local businesses can be friendly and supportive is critical.

The OCP team has been working on the draft OCP Update and we look forward to presenting this important document back to the community for further feedback. Stay tuned to your email and online for opportunities to give us feedback through an online survey, coming in September. We will also be back in Grand Forks the week of September 20th for our next round of in-person engagement. We look forward to seeing you then!
