Cet exercice a pour but de créer une liste d’architectes spécialisés qui pourront ensuite proposer leur projet lorsque la Municipalité ira de l’avant avec un appel de propositions. Pour ce faire, une liste de critères sera établie. Les points généraux, discutés par le groupe chargé d’identifier les besoins récréatifs et communautaires de la municipalité sont, entre autres, un terrain de soccer de grandeur réglementaire, une surface multidisciplinaire, une piste de marche autour des terrains de jeux ainsi qu’autour du complexe, et à l’extérieur, un coin pour les enfants et un emplace- ment qui permettra de l’expansion dans le futur. – Caroline Prévost

The money will be going towards 211 Ontario, a telephone service that people can call when they are searching for specific local services. The 211 Ontario database contains over 60,000 resources with valuable and up-to- date information regarding programs and services available in communities throughout Ontario. Specialists are available 24/7 every day of the year and services are available in over 150 languages. It provides free and confidential information on community, health, social and government services. “I want people to know that if they are looking for information, they only have to dial 2-1-1,” said Julie Demers, a 211 staff member and Clarence-Rockland resident. “During a disaster, like a flood, 211 staff can confirm callers where to get sandbags or where to volunteer.” 5ISPVHIUIFJSJOWFTUNFOU 6OJUFE8BZ wishes to further enhance these services for when they need to be deployed during times of crisis. This investment will focus on the volunteer component during a community crisis – mobilizing people who need help, people who want to help and people who have something to offer, for example. “This will be a tool that allows the com- munity to organize itself in times of crisis,” TBJE+PEJF%FOTNPSF 6OJUFE8BZ3FHJPOBM Director.
