The Delta Regional Authority (DRA) has launched an online community survey to capture resident feedback about our region. This feedback is pivotal as the DRA develops a strategic plan to guide economic development efforts over the next five years, the Regional Development Plan IV. The plan will be based on national data, stakeholder input, and best practices to develop overarching goals, strategies, and tactics that will build upon the existing resources and infrastructure to strategically grow jobs, support businesses, raise the standard of living for citizens, and build a collaborative network to grow the Delta region’s economy.
For the initiative to be successful, it is important to hear from residents. The short survey poses questions on the region’s strengths and weaknesses, recruitment of industry, top goals for the region, how to retain young professionals and families, workforce and quality of life.
