Following a substantial community effort and many years, Whistler has an updated Official Community Plan and Vision (OCP) that sets the course for the community into the future. Whistler Council adopted the OCP at its meeting June 23, 2020. The new vision and OCP builds on Whistler 2020, Whistler’s previous guiding policy document.
Trust in Decision-Making
Trust in decision-making reports a statistical decrease for both permanent residents and second homeowners year over year, continuing a downward trend from the highest results in 2014/2015. Whistler does not have a formalized target for this indicator, however current results for the community are on the low side.
Why monitor this
Community trust in local decision-makers’ (municipal leaders in 2019) intentions provides a snapshot of public support for decisions. Public support is often influenced by the engagement opportunities, communications transparency, as well as community understanding of issues and trade-offs related to decisions.
What this measures
This indicator measures community members’ level of trust that local decision-makers (municipal leaders in 2019) have the best interests of the community in mind when making decisions. The data is collected annually in the Community Life Survey.
