Preliminary results of the Official Community Plan (OCP) Facility Survey have identified Sun Peaks residents’ top priorities for future projects within the resort municipality.
Residents of Sun Peaks and Whitecroft, and guests to the resort, indicated that the recreational facilities they’d most like to see are additional valley trails, a covered ice rink/multi-purpose indoor facility and a fitness centre. When asked to rank social/cultural facilities, respondents put a community centre, an outdoor concert venue and a library/social centre at the top of the list. As for residents’ facilities, a health clinic topped the list at 95 per cent while a new school and employee housing rounded out the top three.
The survey also asked respondents to select their top priorities to help gauge the most important projects overall. Topping the list at 82 per cent was a health clinic followed by a covered ice rink/multi-purpose indoor facility at 56 per cent. The respondents then ranked a new school at 53 per cent followed by a gym/fitness centre and a community centre tied at 41 per cent each.
Input from the survey will aid prioritizing grant applications and capital planning.
