Community stakeholders have been hammering out a vision for a healthier Chilliwack for months.

The result is an action plan with a community-wide approach for tackling crime, homelessness and addiction issues in Chilliwack in the long term.

The draft document is on the city website (www.chilliwack.com). Now it’s the public’s turn to weigh in when it’s presented in large format this week.

An open house is set for May 11 starting at 4 p.m. at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre to present the draft Chilliwack Healthier Community Strategic Action Plan and to invite feedback and community involvement.

A presentation outlining of the history, context, outcomes and next steps for the Healthier Community process are slated for the event, Wednesday at 4:15 p.m. and will be repeated at 7 p.m.

“Key to its success will be the ongoing involvement of the community in taking action,” said Chilliwack Mayor Sharon Gaetz. “I encourage our residents to come to the open house, look at the plan and see how they’d like to get involved.”
