- Dementia Awareness Planning Project—Mary Ashley, Jocelyn Reekie and Mary Catherine Williams, representing the Campbell River Seniors Network and Volunteer Campbell River, provided Council with a presentation about the Dementia Awareness Planning Project. They requested Council’s continued support as they pursue funding opportunities, as well as the continued participation of City staff. Both the presenters and Council noted the importance of raising awareness about dementia and how it affects community members. The presentation was recorded as part of the Council meeting and can be viewed on the City’s website (campbellriver.ca/webcasts).
Council also received an update about the Recreation and Culture Department’s grant-funded Community Dementia Awareness Project activities. The City, in conjunction with the Campbell River Seniors Network, received a $5,000 Plan H grant from BC Healthy Communities Society in August 2020 to build a foundation for the Community Dementia Awareness Project. The resulting activities laid the groundwork for a community-wide awareness program intended to improve quality of life for individuals living with dementia and their families by building relationships, strengthening partnerships and identifying strategies for engagement. Grant-related project activities have now been completed. Council directed that staff continue to be involved with the Dementia Awareness Project moving forward.
- Cycling Advocacy Committee—John Elson of the Cycling Advocacy Committee provided Council with a presentation about the results of the Cycling Advocacy Committee’s survey of Campbell River cyclists regarding infrastructure priorities. Council received the survey report later in the meeting. The presentation was recorded as part of the Council meeting and can be viewed on the City’s website (campbellriver.ca/webcasts).
