Whose job is it to make sure everyone has a high quality of life?
That is the question the Vital Signs program with the Town of High River is looking to answer.
The program has become a way to measure quality of life and Town Council got an update on the program and how it is working at their meeting this week.
Project lead Caitlin Asmundson says the program is a community quality of life measurement tool and the information in it can be used by many groups.
"It is also able to be used by local non-profit organizations, business owners and citizens to determine what we celebrate in our community and what we would like to prioritize in our community and how we can all work together collectively to make change."
Asmundson says the town has made a commitment to the program for five years.
One way they used the information was to guide the conversations in the Community Cafes Our High River hosted this year.
The program is also working towards a better understanding of the community and how everyone works together.
Kalie Mosig, research and content lead, says they have had great support from the community,
"Ultimately if we all work together to understand the information that is here we are going to have a better understanding of our community, what we are doing really great at and how we can capitalize on those topics and also where we might be falling a little bit short."
Mosig said it will also help to make sure community groups in town are not duplicating services and also ensure there are no gaps in services needed by the community.
