Community quality of life

Article content

Recently the Times learned about a survey that will provide a look at the quality of life in town and is available for all community members to respond to.

The 2018 Vital Signs survey, put out by the Town of High River and Our High River, will be available for public input from May 14 to June 4.

Kalie Mosig, community capacity catalyst with Our High River, spoke with the paper and said the survey will measure eight “key indicator areas of quality of life.”

These include environment, lifelong learning, safety and security, expression, connection, livability, thriving populations and health and wellbeing, she said.

Information will be collected from businesses, agencies and community members to see how the community has changed since 2016, Mosig stated in an Our High River media release.

The overall grade determined through the 2016 Vital Signs was a “B,” Mosig said. According to the 2016 survey report, there were 571 respondents.

It will be very interesting to learn about the results once the survey report is shared with the community, which according to the release, will be in October 2018.

“This year I'm really looking forward to seeing the change, hopefully,” Mosig said.

We couldn’t agree more.

It will be fascinating to see, after two years, if there is a change in the overall grade.

Of course, as with any survey, the more people responding, the better.

A large sample of respondents can help better determine how the community feels about the quality of life in town.

During the aforementioned dates, the survey can be completed online at or Print copies are available at the Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) office in the Charles Clark Medical Centre.

With several options to take the survey, it’s easy to be able to complete it.

Let’s all take it upon ourselves to contribute to the data and make this the highest-responded Vital Signs survey to date.
