The Trail Area Health & Environment Committee has held broad community consultations in 2000, 2010 and 2016. The consultations involved outreach to residents and forums for residents to learn about issues, discuss proposed changes to program activities, and give input on the future direction of THE Program.
Results from the 2016 consultation are available to view here; or click the link below. We know that over 200 people completed surveys to tell us their views. Thank you to everyone who participated!
The 2010 public consultation provided useful feedback to us, which we have incorporated into our program over the past 6 years. This included increased program promotion so more people would be aware of the free services available to them; more contact with families; more information on lead safe renovation; a stronger connection with the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary building permits department; and more active links with community groups that support young families.
