Residents give View Royal a resounding thumbs up

Turns out View Royal residents are really happy with their town. Really happy. Like 99%.

Tim Chan of NRG Research Group brought the news to council last night in a report of the outcome of a 401-household survey (results of those who did the survey online are yet to come) of resident satisfaction with View Royal and town services.

Here’s what people said:


All in all, residents are happy here. But that traffic . . .

Of quality of life in View Royal, 59% rate it as ‘very good’ and 40% said ‘good’. 1% didn’t have an answer.


No prize for guessing which issue is the most aggravating.

You got it. Traffic.


Interesting to note that a majority of those surveyed said they’d be okay with paying higher taxes to maintain current town service levels.

The information gleaned from the survey will guide council as we go through strategic planning exercises in the coming weeks.

The report is posted on the town website ( It’s pretty good reading.

    Great feedback! And I concur with the traffic concerns. Frustrating delays and the resulting air pollution is not good for our cardio and respiratory health. Apparently it’s worse for us than tobacco. But we can say no to tobacco. Might be time to plant a LOT more trees:)
