Meeting seeks input for age-friendly city

City hall wants local residents to share ideas to help Guelph cope with an aging population at two meetings on Monday.
The city, which has launched an Older Adult Strategy to “ensure Guelph is an age-ready and age-friendly city,” will hold the June 18 meetings at the Evergreen Seniors Centre from 1-4 p.m. and at the West End Community Centre from 6:30-8:30 p.m., a news release said.
The Older Adult Strategy goes hand in hand with a Community Wellbeing Initiative that the city is also developing, the release said.
This week, more than 10,000 randomly selected households are getting letters inviting them to participate in a 30-minute survey about their quality of life, as part of the city’s public consultations on the Community Wellbeing Initiative, it said.
The city is working on this initiative with a committee of community partners, including the Volunteer Centre of Guelph Wellington, Wellington Dufferin Guelph Public Health, the University of Guelph, the Guelph Police Service, Innovation Guelph and the Canadian Index of Wellbeing Network at the University of Waterloo, which will conduct the survey on the city’s behalf.
In addition to the survey, city hall is encouraging residents to participate in other upcoming events to discuss the quality of life in Guelph and what needs to happen to improve the wellbeing of individuals, neighbourhoods and the city as a whole, the release said.
