1. Nottawasaga Community Safety and Well-Being Plan

The Town of New Tecumseth, in partnership with the Township of Adjala-Tosorontio and the Township of Essa, are joining together to develop a Nottawasaga Community Safety and Well-Being (CSWB) Plan.

Throughout the County of Simcoe, eight (8) community safety and well-being priority areas (areas of risk) have been identified. After a comprehensive prioritization process that was informed by current data, the Nottawasaga CSWB Plan will focus on the following three (3) areas of risk:

1. Mental Health and Addictions
2. Attainable Housing
3. Job Creation

We are looking for your assistance in advising us on what you believe, or have experienced to be, any challenges, obstacles or gaps in addressing the above issues.

We welcome your thoughts or ideas on how best to create solutions to the above areas of risk. 

NOTE: 

The residents of Nottawasaga will benefit from the local CSWB planning efforts and, indirectly, from the planning efforts throughout the County around the other areas of risk as there will be opportunities to leverage the collective wisdom and learning.

By participating in this survey, you agree to the collection of your answers and the use of information from your responses to inform community safety and well-being planning. This information may be shared with the County of Simcoe and Avail Consulting to support broader community safety and well-being planning. Your personal information will not be attached to your responses and only overall results, without individual identifying information, will be shared in the final Nottawasaga CSWB Plan.  The Nottawasaga CSWB Plan will be made available to the general public and posted on the respective municipal websites.

You may exit the survey at any time if you change your mind about participation. Only completed surveys will be counted in the final results.
