Downtown Parking Posts

Notice something different about Creston’s downtown area? If you’ve had the pleasure of walking or driving downtown recently, you may have noticed the old parking meter tops are gone. In their place are some aesthetically pleasing decals on the parking meter poles, which clearly display the Town’s 2 hour free parking policy. Furthermore, with the poles still firmly planted in the pavement, drivers will know where to park and have a basic understanding of the parking space dimensions. This change will also serve as a helpful reminder to tourists and those unfamiliar with Creston’s parking policy, that parking is free for a defined period of time.

Have any comments, or questions about the changes? Feel free to call Town Hall at 250-428-2214 or email info@creston.ca. You can also pose your questions on Twitter (www.twitter.com/townofcreston) or Facebook (www.facebook.com/townofcrestonbc).

Town's 2013 Citizen Satisfaction Survey Results Now Online!

On November 20, 2013, the Town of Creston mailed out a Citizen Satisfaction Survey to 1000 randomly selected households in the Town. This was the second occasion in which the Town has conducted a Citizen Satisfaction Survey, with the first instance being in 2009. 21 of the 1000 surveys went ‘undelivered’ through the mail, leaving 979 that were successfully delivered to random Creston homeowners. 384 surveys were successfully returned to the Town of Creston, for a response rate of 39.2%, compared to 32.3% in 2009. The results were incredibly positive, showing significant increases in many categories. But don't take our word, we invite you to view the survey for yourself, HERE.

Telus Fibre Optic Network Coming to Creston!

TELUS and the Town of Creston are proud to partner on a project to bring the TELUS Fibre Optic Network to the Town; something that will benefit and strengthen the community. Many socio-economic opportunities will arise from having over 90% of homes, businesses and organizations able to connect to a fibre optic network. These opportunities include homes having access to the best entertainment (including Optik TV), businesses having access to the services they need to operate locally and compete globally, and service providers in areas such as health and education having the opportunity to innovate.

For more information, please visit the special website that has been created for this build program: www.telus.com/fibre OR www.telus.com/Creston. There is also a dedicated team at TELUS who are available to answer any questions and who may be contacted at 310-3427.
