Kawartha Lakes - The municipality has launched a survey and a Community Conversation Toolkit for residents to provide their input into the Kawartha Lakes Community Safety and Well-Being Planning process.

The goal of the plan is to outline priority risks in the community and address them through proactive, integrated strategies that ensure vulnerable populations receive the help they need from the providers best suited to support them.

The Community Safety and Well-Being Plan Advisory Committee has identified four priority areas: mental health and addictions, poverty, housing and youth.

The focus of the survey is to gather feedback from residents on perceived or experienced challenges, obstacles and gaps that may affect safety and well-being in our community.

“It is important for us to understand the issues in our community and we hope everyone will take the opportunity to participate in the survey,” said Kawartha Lakes Police Service Chief Mark Mitchell who is the Chair of the Advisory Committee.

The survey is available on Jump In, Kawartha Lakes and will take approximately 15 – 20 minutes to complete. Paper copies of the survey are also available at local Kawartha Lakes Library branches.

The Community Conversation Toolkit is designed to be used by small groups to facilitate their own conversation and provide their input to the Committee. The Toolkit and information on how to submit the results can be found on Jump In, Kawartha Lakes.

“Any community group, organization, association, neighbourhood or family group can use the Toolkit,” said Chief Mitchell. “We’ve provided some questions to get the conversation going and we are very interested in hearing about any challenges that may exist and ideas on how we can address them.”

Both the survey and the Community Conversations will be open until Friday, August 13 at 4:30pm.
