Imagine Lacombe Municipal Sustainability Plan
Imagine Lacombe is a community-wide conversation to build a vision for tomorrow. Input was sought from the community through a variety of avenues for people to come up with what they valued about Lacombe and what they wanted for the future, as well as a myriad of fantastic ideas for actions.
Community input included an on-line survey, post-card questionnaires, focus groups, presentations, strategy area worksheets, four Ideas Walls, and a half-day workshop with the Community Sustainability Action Team (CSAT). All of the input will inform the vision and desired outcomes, as well as ideas for actions, that will create the Municipal Sustainability Plan.
Are you looking for some creative ways to engage your community in action planning? We are here to discuss. Call Cheeying at (604) 935-8209 or email cho[at]whistlercentre.ca

An age-friendly community has safe, accessible outdoor spaces, buildings and transportation. Housing is well designed and affordable. There are opportunities to work, volunteer and participate. Information, support and health services are tailored to the needs of older adults. There is respect, for all ages. Age-friendly communities not only improve quality of life for seniors, it also creates a more inclusive, safe and accessible community for everyone.
