Community Safety Task Force
The Community Safety Task Force is an Ad Hoc Committee of Council that was formed in April 2018 to undertake a community and stakeholder consultation process for the purpose of developing a Community Safety Plan. It is also tasked with looking at safety concerns in Downtown Midland based on concerns brought forward by stakeholders and businesses in the downtown core. The Task Force membership includes several key stakeholders within the Town (see the list on the right of this page). The first meeting was held in early May 2018.
Update - June 2018
The Town of Midland's newly-formed Community Safety Task Force is bringing the community together to identify and address the safety issues facing our downtown.
“We are asking residents to provide their feedback on safety in the downtown, and what issues they've encountered," said Mayor Gord McKay. “We are using a multi-pronged approach. We have launched an online survey that residents can participate in, and we are also holding a public Town Hall meeting that residents are invited to attend."
The results of the survey and feedback from the Town Hall meeting will be used to develop a Downtown Community Safety Plan that will be presented to Council by August 31, 2018.
The Town Hall meeting will be held on Wednesday, June 20, at St. Paul's United Church, located at 308 King Street, from 6:30 – 8 p.m.
The survey can be found at www.surveymonkey.ca/r/midland-safety.
“We take community safety very seriously and encourage residents to get involved so that we can ensure a safe, healthy and sustainable community for us all." added Mayor McKay.
