Input Wanted on new Community Safety and Well-being Plan

Published on: 2020/10/27 - in News

City of Kingston residents are being sought to provide input as it develops a Community Safety and Well-being Plan (CSWB).

Participants will help identify the issues that are most prevalent and have the greatest impact on the safety and well-being of residents.

“Kingston is fortunate to have a large number of capable community organizations that want to improve how they work together toward a service delivery model to serve those in need,” said Cheryl Hitchen, Social Policy & Strategic Community Development Manager. “This plan will help define and address priorities in the community to ensure vulnerable populations receive the help they need from the providers that are best suited to support them.”

The plan will be submitted by the City to the Ministry of the Solicitor General Community Safety later in 2021 and is being developed with guidance from a CSWB Advisory Committee and leaders from various sectors.

According to a City release, input received from residents will guide the further development of the Community Safety and Well-being plan by helping the City to identify priority areas to be addressed, understand what is currently working well, and what needs to be improved and what might be missing.

You can offer your input on the plan at GetInvolved.CityofKingston.ca by 4pm on November 30 or phone and leave a message to request a paper copy of the short survey by calling 613-546-4291 ext. 4806.
