Community Foundation launches survey for 2014 Vital Signs Report
The Community Foundation of Greater Peterborough has launched a survey to gain local perspectives on quality of life in the City and County of Peterborough. The survey will inform the 2nd annual Greater Peterborough’s Vital Signs® report, to be released on October 7, 2014. The survey is available in print and online at www.cfgp.ca and will be open for responses until August 3, 2014. Survey respondents will be eligible to win a prize of dinner and a show for two people.
Greater Peterborough’s Vital Signs® is an annual snapshot of our community that measures the vitality of City and County of Peterborough. It’s an opportunity to understand our strengths and identify areas where change is needed, while supporting action on issues that are critical to our quality of life.
The report highlights key areas of community vitality, including economy, environment and culture. The community survey will provide an opportunity for residents of Greater Peterborough to rate the vitality of each of these areas and have a say in what issues are most important in the city and county. The survey also asks people to name the best thing about living in Greater Peterborough, and encourages community members to suggest positive changes for the area.
“An important part of Vital Signs is recognizing that we’re all experts when it comes to knowing our community,” says Nicole Gagliardi, CFGP’s Program Coordinator and Vital Signs lead. “The most exciting part is that it brings different perspectives together from across Greater Peterborough. Our goal is to get a variety of responses from people who represent all parts of our community, so that the survey results speak to the diversity of experiences and perspectives here in Greater Peterborough”.
The survey will be distributed throughout the City and County of Peterborough, including Asphodel-Norwood, Cavan Monaghan, City of Peterborough, Curve Lake First Nation, Douro-Dummer, Havelock-Belmont-Methuen, Hiawatha First Nation, North Kawartha, Otonabee-South Monaghan, Selwyn and Trent Lakes.
The Community Foundation of Greater Peterborough is the vital link between caring members of our community and causes that matter. It fosters philanthropy through the creation and management of endowed and special funds. Grants from the Foundation to registered charities enhance the quality of life for local citizens. The Foundation enables all residents to contribute to positive, lasting changes in our community.
