City Seeking Input to Make Regina Safer for All
Survey to Reveal How Residents Feel About Community Safety & Well-being
The City of Regina asks residents to build a stronger community together by helping develop Regina’s first-ever comprehensive Community Safety & Well-being (CSWB) Plan. The first opportunity to participate begins today with the launch of a new online community survey on Be Heard Regina.
The City is partnering with the Canadian Municipal Network on Crime Prevention to develop the CSWB Plan. In addition to the community survey, over the next few months, focused conversations will take place with a broad range of stakeholder groups including, but not limited to, youth, seniors, women, Indigenous residents, newcomers, community service providers and residents within a number of Regina neighbourhoods.
The final report for Regina’s Community Safety & Well-being Plan is scheduled to be delivered to Council for consideration by September 2021.
Visit Be Heard Regina or Regina.ca/wellbeing to take the survey or learn more.
