Our collective work on the Community Safety and Well-Being Plan is moving forward and throughout the past month, we are heartened to see how the community is supporting each other in the most remarkable ways as we stay strong and connected while being apart.
We want to hear from you, what safety and well-being issues are key for you as we build our Plan? Share your views through the online survey, which is open until the end of May.
We are hearing lots of great ideas from across the city and want to know what issues are important to you. Given the uncertainty of how long we’ll be asked to continue distancing ourselves from neighbours, the project team is currently focusing on online engagement opportunities.
Visit our webpage at Ottawa.ca and participate in the online survey, which will be open until the end of May. Please also check out our new story feature which allows you to share your views and experiences for others to see. By sharing stories with each other, we all gain a better understanding as to why issues are important and what makes our city unique.
Your views are important to us and all feedback is being considered in order to set future priorities for our city. If you have any questions, contact us at CSWB/SBEC@ottawa.ca and a team member would be pleased to call or email you back. Most importantly, we hope that you and your family stay safe during this challenging time.
On October 23rd Council approved the Community Safety and Well-Being Plan Roadmap
The report sets out the recommended approach and next steps for the creation of legislatively required Community Safety and Well-Being Plan for the City of Ottawa.
The Provincial Planning Framework outlines four areas of focus for the plan which include:
- Social development which focuses on promoting and maintaining well-being;
- Prevention which focuses on proactively reducing identified risk;
- Risk intervention which focuses on mitigating situations of elevated risk; and
- Incident response which focuses on critical and non-critical incident response.
Council approved a six cumulative phase approach to develop a Community Safety and Well-Being Plan by 2021 to address the root causes of crime, social disorder and ill health.
