Shortly, a colourful community survey will be arriving at your home. Moniaive Initiative is a community organization dedicated to the vitality and resilience of the Glencairn Parish. Recently we have developed a set of questions based on key topics raised at community meetings, from affordable housing and local businesses to land access and environmental sustainability. There will be one survey per household. This is your chance to sit down with your family and discuss what matters to you in your community. It would be a great help if you could take just a bit of time to fill it out and return it to a drop-box near you.
“Why another community survey?” you might be asking. Did you know all the projects delivered by Moniaive Initiative rely on grants from a range of funders? Our achievements at The Hive, the affordable housing project at Sawmill Green, improvements to Macara Park, the successful campaign to lower the village speed limit to 20 mph, and projects to help install renewable energy in our community spaces have all required substantial fundraising.
We have lots of exciting ideas for things to come. In order to secure funding for the future of Moniaive, Kirkland and Wallaceton, our community needs to demonstrate to potential funders what we hold most valuable. The best way to do that is to hold a community survey. The information that you provide now will be used to support our future grant applications.
So sharpen your pencils and get ready for the Shaping Glencairn community survey coming your way. Moniaive Initiative has taken great care to make sure each household gets just one copy, and that they are anonymous and fair. For that reason, each survey will be delivered in an envelope. Once you have completed the survey, put it back in the envelope and seal it. Then you can return it to a local drop off point or arrange for a pick up by using the contact details above. If for some reason you don’t receive a survey, please be in touch and another will be sent to you right away.
This is the easiest way you can help shape your community. Moniaive Initiative thanks you.
