Consulting the community: Municipality launches survey

Clarington Apr. 28, 2015/- The Municipality has launched a community-wide survey to gauge the level of satisfaction among older adults with the Clarington Older Adult Centre Board. This is part of an extensive consultation process on the proposed Clarington Older Adult Strategy. On April 13, Council voted in favour of further consultation as it reviews the proposed strategy.

The strategy is a report commissioned by the Community Services Department to determine the current and future needs of older adults, an increasingly growing demographic in the community. A consultant was hired and worked with staff, representatives from the Clarington Older Adult Centre Board, members of the public, and a representative from the Region of Durham to build a long-term Older Adult Strategy. The report outlines 43 recommendations. Some of the proposals suggest the Municipality take over administrative duties for staffing and program delivery.

The survey is available online. Paper copies are available at all municipal recreation facilities, at various branches of the Clarington Public Library, at the Clarington Beech Centre and various other community locations. The survey will be active until May 12. Results will be compiled confidentially and will make up part of a staff report to Council. In the coming months, members of Council will review the report and all related proposals and decide on how best to proceed.
