Red Deer residents can give input on city’s housing, homelessness plan

Open house held on Tuesday at Dawe Recreation Centre

Red Deer residents have another chance to provide feedback on the city’s housing and homelessness plan next week.

The city is preparing to wrap up the community engagement phase of the development of the new Community Housing and Homelessness Integrated Plan.

As a follow up to community discussions held over the past few months, citizens are invited to an open house on Tuesday, Sept. 10, to hear initial findings.

Results from an online survey and previously held community workshops will be presented at the Dawe Recreation Centre, 56 Holt St., Training Room 3, and public feedback will be sought.

No pre-registration is required.

“As we come to the close of our engagement process for this plan, we are looking forward to sharing our initial findings,” said social planning manager Tricia Hercina.

“We have engaged with, and heard from, over 2,500 citizens and stakeholders throughout the community, and now we want to close the loop and ensure that we are on the right track.”

The open house will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., with 30-minute presentations throughout the day at 11 a.m., noon, 1 p.m., 3:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.

Following the open house, a draft plan will be developed and presented to city council this fall.
