City surveying residents on transportation habits
How do you get around Grande Prairie?
That’s what the City is looking to find out over the next few weeks through a community survey.
Environmental Stewardship Manager Michelle Gairdner says they’re interested in finding out what would encourage residents to walk, bike or use public transit more.
“How do we get people out of their cars? Not all the time, but how do we get people to walk more or ride their bikes more? We have an internal team that’s been working on this project, and we decided that one of the things we needed to do was to understand why people aren’t doing it.”
The survey is available online at www.cityofgp.com/mobility and can be taken before the end of the month.
Each survey taker will be entered into a draw for an iPad mini.
Residents can also have their say at a community mobility engagement session on March 20th at Teresa Sargent Hall at 7 p.m.
