Why is the City’s feedback process not online?

In order to ensure the feedback received is as representative as possible of Nelson, a mail-survey will be the only method to provide feedback at the resident-level. By ensuring that each household has an equal chance to provide feedback, the goal is to have statistically significant results.

The City wants to ensure that Nelson residents and businesses have the loudest voice in providing feedback. It is difficult to configure an online survey to ensure that only those who live and own businesses here are able to participate, and participate only one time.

Additional face-to-face events are being held for the public and for community groups related to youth, families, seniors, social services, public health, and business to obtain further feedback and dialogue that might be relevant to these groups.
