We need to develop a plan to attract the younger generation. I am a part of that generation. I'm in my 20's and want to stay in Niagara to work. If we can develop a plan, my generation will stay and thus contribute to the local economy. Engage residents, business owners, municipal governments and other agencies to develop an economic plan.
People need to feel connected to one another. Community design is a big contributing factor; i.e. accessible, lit engaging park spaces; housing close to downtown to encourage walking and cycling. This will also contribute to wellbeing and better mental health.
Increase the number of people who walk, cycle and take public transit. Create a transit supportive community that creates equitable access to employment, necessities and recreation for all ages and abilities.
