The village of Port Clements is sending out questionnaires this week to all residents and property owners, asking for their opinion on a variety of tourism-related questions. Council wants to know what the public thinks about how Port could attract more tourists, how the government dock should be developed, and whether the village website should be redesigned. The survey was developed by the village’s tourism group. Port does have some money from the Union of BC Municipalities to spend on tourism, and the results of the survey will help the group make spending decisions. The village says it will apply for money from the provincial and federal governments and other sources for tourism projects in the future, not to the taxpayers. Clerk-treasurer Heather Nelson-Smith said the survey results should be compiled by sometime next month. Residents can drop their completed surveys off at the village office or mail them in.
