Letters: JDFEA services building survey

OPSRRA publishes the results of their August survey

The Otter Point & Shirley Residents & Ratepayers Association (OPSRRA) wishes to thank the Sooke News for their recent coverage of the Juan de Fuca Electoral Area Services Building proposal. Community awareness of the proposal and our association’s on-line survey was definitely helped by the front page story. For those who don’t receive the OPSRRA newsletter here are the survey results:

Should the cost of borrowing the estimated 1.3 million dollars to build a JDFEA Services Building go to public referendum?  Yes: 20  No: 18

Would you support the idea of owning a building if the cost was about the same as renting?  Yes: 35  No: 3

Is locating the building in the Juan de Fuca Electoral Area an important consideration?    Yes: 33  No: 5

Do you support the idea of adding an 80 seat meeting room to accommodate community meetings?  Yes: 33 No: 4 (One respondent said it would depend on any additional cost.)

This month’s OPSRRA survey is asking questions about the recent Sooke Subaru Triathlon. It can be accessed until the end of September through our web site at: www.opsrra.ca
