Have Your Say on Ottawa Community Safety and Well-Being (CSWB) Plan
What Does Community Safety and Well-Being Mean to You?
The City of Ottawa is developing its first Community Safety and Well-Being (CSWB) Plan.
This plan will help us all work together toward a safe, healthy and vibrant community. In response to this I am holding an online conversation to hear your views. Please join me on Tuesday, June 23 at 6:30 pm to discuss what makes a community feel safe.
To give you some background on this the Province of Ontario has directed each municipality to develop this plan because they want everyone in Ontario’s communities to feel safe, have a sense of belonging, and be a place where individuals and families have access to education, health care, food, housing, and social connections.
What does Community Safety and Well-Being mean to you? Frankly, it means something different to everyone. We want to hear about what you love about Ottawa that makes you feel safe and gives you a sense of well-being? But we also want to hear about what needs to be improved. Are you concerned with being a victim of crime? Do you have enough opportunities for social interaction and physical activities? Do you worry about paying your bills or putting food on the table? Are mental health services or housing availability issues that you face?
It is important to share your ideas so that the Plan reflects the needs of your community. Your feedback, along with other data and research, will be used to shape the Plan. It will help develop strategies and actions to make Ottawa safe and healthy.
We all have a role to play in our community’s safety and well-being.
