What does the community mean to you

Last year, the BTI challenged residents of the Crowsnest Pass to examine its own identity and really give some thought into what constitutes a community.

The New Year has seen a new council who seems to have already taken charge to the public outcry for improvement in relationships in the business, political and private communities.

Christmas provided the municipality and communities in the Crowsnest Pass an opportunity to get together and work on that community spirit thing we heard was missing..

This new council seems to have put the wheels in motion to gain a stronger idea of the challenges faced by the municipality.

But what hasn’t changed (and has become a repetitive tune in my experience) throughout many small towns, is the dissenting voice you could hear from anyone about how it is time for them to leave for a happier place or a better opportunity.

More and more what I am hearing about is the dissatisfaction with politics between people in the communities or a desire to start a new life in a drastically different place like a big city or a different county altogether.

In the same respect, you have people who visit the Crowsnest Pass as tourists or as a regular pass time and swear by the beauty surrounding them.

So, what does your community mean to you.

In reality, the findings of the Russell Farmer BTI are really not that important.

The study`s findings do underline important areas we can work on together to become a positive and prosperous community.

Community is basically that feeling bordering a sense of belonging that comes from walking into a town or region and you feel welcomed.

Despite any misgivings about sincerity or the politics involved with the community, the Crowsnest Pass will make you feel welcome.
