One week since being launched the Grey Bruce Community Safety and Well Being Survey has had over 730 people complete it.

Project Coordinator Sarah Cowley says the response rate is "very good".

"Bruce and Grey residents have a history of being very engaged in their communities, and I am so pleased this is holding true for our project."

She adds, "the partner municipalities and organizations need this very important feedback in order to take collaborative action on the priority concerns that come to light, and so we encourage residents to share the survey with their families, friends, colleagues and connections."

In total 57 local groups, including local municipalities and organizations from healthcare to social services and policing are working on the  plan.

The survey asks people how they feel about their safety where they live, and what they think needs to be prioritized to create a safer, healthier community.

Cowley adds an error brought to her attention by seasonal residents who felt the first question didn't allow them to complete the survey, has been corrected.

"The wording has now been changed, and we would like all residents of Bruce and Grey to know that we value their input, whether they are year-round or part-time residents."

Until March 22, one can fill-out they survey here, or they can contact their local Municipal office for a printed copy.
