Community Youth Survey - Sooke
Thank you for taking the time to fill out this survey. The answers you give will help two projects understand the needs and voices of youth in Sooke:
1. Sooke Region Communities Health Network (SRCHN) is planning to build a space that will be shared by seniors, teenagers, and the community. We would like to hear what you would like to see and do in this space.
2. The District of Sooke is completing their Official Community Plan (OCP) review. It’s an opportunity for the District to ensure that the goals and objectives which were set out in the OCP are still important to the community.
