City of Burnaby launches first Community Safety PlanCity of Burnaby
BURNABY - What makes a safe city? That’s the question we’re asking residents as we develop the City of Burnaby’s first-ever Community Safety Plan.
“I encourage everyone to take part in some important work we’re doing this year,” said Mayor Mike Hurley. “We want to hear your concerns, find out what’s working well for you, and get your ideas for making Burnaby an even safer city than it is today.”
The Community Safety Plan will focus on:
- Crime prevention and reduction
- Emergency preparedness
- Emergency services (police, fire, ambulance, etc.)
- Transportation safety
- Community amenity safety
“This is a tremendous opportunity to look at safety through a broad, city-wide lens,” said Dave Critchley, Director, Public Safety & Community Services. “The goal is to build on our strengths and seek opportunities to become an even safer city.”
Join us as we explore how we can keep our community safe and maintain a high quality of life for current and future residents. Once complete, this high-level strategic plan will help guide the decisions of the City and community partners about community safety initiatives for years to come. A final copy of the plan will be presented to City Council for review and consideration this fall.
Help us build a safer city, together! Have your say at one of these opportunities.
