Parksville council wants resident input on top priorities

Answers will help determine strategic plans for next three years

What are your priorities for Parksville?

City council is seeking input from Parksville residents to help determine strategic priorities for the next three years.

An online survey, open until May 20, is available from the home page of the city’s website at

In January, Mayor Ed Mayne brought together members from the Parksville community at the Mayor’s Roundtable to start a conversation and learn what residents love about the city, all intended to help determine the priority actions the community wishes council to focus on during their term of office.

The Mayor’s Roundtable participants came away with five key priorities – housing, health care, recreation, community safety and economic development. The roundtable summary report may be viewed on the city’s website.

Council is looking for feedback, comments and suggestions from Parksville residents to help identify priorities which will influence council’s strategic priorities for the next three years. Understanding resident priorities will then assist council when making decisions about priorities and so available resources can best be assigned to achieve them.

The feedback from this survey will be summarized and presented at the May 22 council meeting. If you have questions about the survey, please email

The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete and the information collected in the survey is anonymous. Paper copies of the survey may be obtained from city hall, 100 Jensen Avenue East.
