A survey regarding Whitecourt's Multi-Use Facility Project will
be conducted in early March. The Town of Whitecourt and Woodlands
County have contracted Banister Research and Consulting Inc. to
develop, conduct and analyze a telephone survey....
.....In order to provide both Councils with a statistically
accurate sample of the community, the survey will involve 400
randomly selected participants. The survey is expected to last
approximately 10 minutes and will include a variety of questions
pertaining to the future of the multi-use facility project. Survey
results will be available in early April.
The Town has compiled conceptual designs and information regarding
each of the options to be discussed in the survey. The information
will be available to the public on the Town website, www.whitecourt.ca,
the Whitecourt Star, and at the Community Services Department
at the Town Office.
The three options identified in the survey are:
1. Construction of a new fieldhouse as a stand-alone facility
with modernization to the existing pool and arenas.
2. Construction of a new fieldhouse and pool at a new location
with modernization to the Twin Arenas.
3. Construction of a new fieldhouse with the existing pool and
arenas with modernization to the existing facilities
Whitecourt Town Council encourages all members of the community
to inform themselves on the issues surrounding this project and
to participate in the telephone survey if selected.
