SFX residents surveyed on recreation preferences

  • Print

St. Francois Xavier residents are being asked to weigh in, through a new survey, on how the RM should spend its recreation dollars.

While $55,000 was designated in the municipality’s 2013 financial plan for construction of a skate park, reeve Roger Poitras said council is now seeking residents’ opinions on how the money should be spent in order to find out if residents want a skate park or would prefer another development, such as a tennis court or lawn bowling pitch.


"The purpose of the survey is to gauge the feelings of the people in the area," he said. He added some have spoken out in favour of the skate park, while others are against it.


The survey contains five questions: four relate to the proposed skate park, while the final one gives respondents the chance to say how they wish approximately $60,000 to be spent on a recreation project.


"This will give us more information," Poitras said.


The survey is on the municipal website at http://www.rm-stfrancois.mb.ca/index.htm and paper copies are available at the municipal office.


The survey results will be discussed at council’s July 16 meeting.
