Dear Fort William Neighbourhood Business:

 

The issue of safety and security in the South Core neighbourhood has been identified as a significant concern for Thunder Bay businesses and residents.

We hope you will attend this meeting to learn more about recommended improvements and to share your priorities for safety & security improvements in the South Core neighbourhood.

If you should have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours truly,

Lee-Ann Chevrette – Coordinator, Crime Prevention Council
City of Thunder Bay

BACKGROUND
In September 2014, a comprehensive safety assessment based on the principles of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED), was conducted within the South Core neighbourhood. The resulting Comprehensive Safety & Security Design Assessment: South Core Neighbourhood Report (Assessment Report) contains the results of the assessment, including: existing positive safety features in the neighbourhood, specific safety & security deficiencies and concerns, results of a Citizen Survey on safety perceptions, and recommendations to improve public safety.

In December 2014, Thunder Bay City Council approved the Assessment Report as a guiding document for neighbourhood improvements in the South Core downtown, and also approved the creation of a South Core Public Safety Task Force (Task Force). The purpose of the Task Force is to establish priorities and implement the recommendations of the Assessment Report.
