 CV-KL Community Survey Report – November 2017

This document compiles the ideas, priorities, and concerns that arose through the extensive outreach and discussion with community members, businesses, partners and other stakeholders. Engagement focused on understanding the strengths, challenges and priority opportunities for economic development in the area.

Part 1 of the document provides a summary and overview of the findings. Part 2 provides details results from the community and business survey, vulnerable populations outreach, and all other outreach and engagement.


  CV-KL Economic Snapshot – December 2017

This document is a ‘snapshot’ of the local economy of the Creston Valley-Kootenay Lake area, and has been developed as part of the EAP process. The purpose of this document is to provide a common set of up-to-date facts about local economy for all partners and communities in the region.



 CV-KL Strategy & Action Analysis Report – December 2017

This document illustrates the process of determining the regional economic strategy – which includes action items, strategies and goals for economic development. Timing is discussed, and the direction for the plan over the remainder of the project.

At this point, partners review the research/analysis on the strategy areas, and decide which ones they want to move forward for further consideration and discussion with stakeholder groups. Ideally, some of the stakeholder attendees in each area would commit to championing or supporting action(s) moving forward.


 CV-KL Business Survey Report – Winter 2018 

After initial community outreach in Fall 2017, the team identified a need to connect further with local businesses. Many business owners, operators and entrepreneurs have indicated collaboration and additional support is needed for them to grow and prosper in our region. The Business Support Survey looks further into these opportunities and asks for specifics.
