Age Friendly Plan moving along in Harrison

Cherie Enns Consulting will be in charge of the Village of Harrison Hot Springs Age Friendly Plan.

The company was chosen from a pool of seven who responded to a request for proposal. Of the seven who responded to the Village, two were non-compliant.

Cherie Enns submitted a bid for $23,499.78. City Spaces and Whistler Centre for Sustainability put in bids about $300-400 more.

The Village received a $20,000 grant from the province to create an Age-Friendly Plan.

Lisa Grant, manager of development and community services, said the plan "should address the aging population in the Village and provide a series of priorities and recommendations that are unique to Harrison Hot Springs."

Those may include anything from outdoor spaces and buildings, to transportation and health services, she added.

Cherie Enns Consulting has also worked with the District of Peachland, the City of Abbotsford and the Township of Langley on various assessments for community development.

Their website states they are "based on building community capacity, fostering unparalleled innovation, trust, understanding, responsibility and engagement...

Our goal is to promote action research and community-based innovation through consultation and project management."
