Quality of life survey nears end

The deadline for the Regional District of North Okanagan’s quality of life survey is today.

North Okanagan residents still have time to have their say on the region’s quality of life.

The deadline for the Regional District of North Okanagan’s quality of life survey is today.

“I am encouraging everyone to take 10 minutes to complete a survey and prove your opinion of quality of life in this region,” said Anthony Kittel, regional growth strategy co-ordinator.

About 1,000 surveys have been completed over the last three weeks.

Among those are 350 surveys from students. Their participation was co-ordinated by the Clarence Fulton Secondary Global Education class.

“The youth voice is essential to this region,” said Kittel.

“The survey will be one of many pieces of information collected by the regional district to evaluate the effectiveness of the regional growth strategy and assist identifying regional priorities. “

All residents who complete the survey will be entered into a draw to win an iPod Nano or a $200 gift card, as well as a chance to win one of 10 $25 gift cards from the store of their choice.

To be eligible, residents must submit surveys before 4:30 p.m. today.

The survey can be completed at www.rdno.ca/qols or paper copies are available at the RDNO office, municipal offices and local Okanagan Regional Library branches.
