Montrose – Online survey gathers responses on village’s future

“We want to make sure that the community is involved in the direction that we go, down the road.” - Mayor Joe Danchuk

Montrose residents now have the chance to tell the village what they think about the future of the Imagine Montrose Integrated Community Sustainability Plan (ICSP) through an online survey.

Mayor Joe Danchuk says community input is invaluable to the council and will help keep residents involved in future decision-making.

“I think (community input) is huge,” he said. “We want to make sure that the community is involved in the direction that we go, down the road.”

In partnership with the Whistler Centre for Sustainability, the village council has put together a survey asking residents what they love, what they would change, what challenges exist and what their hopes and dreams for Montrose are.

Answers are going to be compiled, analyzed and presented at a public meeting on the evening of Sept. 11.

Danchuk says a public meeting after the survey closes is important because it will let residents know where Montrose is heading.

“We want to make sure that people are aware of the direction we are going and how to keep our community the way it is and keep pushing ahead,” he said.

“Regardless if it is parks, infrastructure or whatever, it is important for the community to be on board and have as much information as possible.”

The plan is to create long-term goals that look towards the next generation of Montrose residents.

The survey can be accessed online at or a paper copy can be picked up at the village office. Residents can share their thoughts and ideas about Montrose’s future until Sept. 1.
