We have created this community survey to learn more about the interests, concerns and priorities of residents – and set new goals for the GCL Board of Directors. Your feedback is important!
There are 22 questions, and it takes 10 minutes to complete. All responses will be kept completely confidential. If you wish to provide a name or email at the end of the survey, you will be entered in a draw for Five $100 Gift Certificates from local businesses, including: Shoppers Drug Mart, Mt Fuji and The Crown & Anchor Pub.
Please note, the comment sections are optional.
Thanks for your input. Your involvement helps keep our community great!
WHY PARTICIPATE IN OUR COMMUNITY SURVEY? BECAUSE IT LEADS TO REAL RESULTS!
Griesbach Community League (GCL) was established in 2012 to ensure Griesbach remains one of the most vibrant, engaged and safe communities in Edmonton by representing the needs and interests of Griesbach residents. We do this by hosting social events, coordinating community sport programs, advocating on civic and community development matters and much more.
Five years ago GCL asked residents to take a community survey. Your feedback was invaluable – and helped us establish priorities. Here are just a few of the successful initiatives that resulted from your input:
1. A new playground accessible by students at MGG School
After 5 years of hard work, all funding is finally in place for our fully designed playground – with construction expected to begin Spring 2017.
2. Community sports programs for our kids
(Griesbach now boasts one of the fastest growing programs in Edmonton, with indoor and outdoor programs. We also launched Griesbach Minis (for kids 6 and under) and an Introduction To Baseball program.
3. Awesome social events
You said you wanted a chance to meet neighbours. We responded by introducing The Shake at the Lake and Spring Fling.
4. Ongoing advocacy
2012 Survey respondents stress the importance of working with the City and Canada Lands to speak on behalf of residents on issues that affect those living in Griesbach. We’ve been actively involved with both.
