Chamber to present to Town of Golden council on Bridge to Bridge poll results

Kicking Horse Country Chamber President to present to Town of Golden council on Bridge to Bridge poll results

It has been a busy time for the Kicking Horse Country Chamber of Commerce. The group has been working to collect data from a pole which was taken by members in regards to the proposed Bridge to Bridge project. Now that the data has been collected the group’s president, Lori Baxendale,  will be presenting the finding to the Town of Golden Council.

“We are very grateful for the effort that the Town of Golden has made in allowing us to present the results of the survey we have done with our membership in relation to the Bridge to Bridge project,” Baxendale said.

She went on to explain that upon the closing of the survey the results and comments were carefully collected by the policy and advocacy committee of the board and condensed the information.

“We are going to present this to our board at the next meeting on July 11 while the Town has been gracious enough to allow us to present this to them on July 3 before the discussion during the special open council session where they will be discussing the project,” Baxendale said.

She went on and said it is important that the voices of the membership be heard and she is happy the council is willing to hear from the chamber.

“We have forged a relationship where we are able to communicate the wishes and desires of our members to the Town,” she said.

Baxendale explained due to the meeting with council and the chamber board meeting later this month the decision to release the results to the public has been delayed until those discussions are held.

“We have not had a board meeting yet to present them to the board and we have not had the meeting with the Town of Golden to present the findings to them,” Baxendale said. However she did add the survey results are online at
