- Introductions were made.
- Background to Urban CAP
Bernie Hart gave an overhead presentation on why, what it is, who
is targeted, what is a site, etc.
Currently there are 20 HRM sites outside the urban core with plans for
approximately 30 in the urban area for a total of 50+ in HRM.
Key components along with access are training, service delivery and
distance education. Services Canada, a new government agency, is looking at
service delivery with 8 pilots planned for Cape Breton.
- Neighbourhood Cluster Concept
Bernie continued his presentation. The example of Central Dartmouth was
explained. Each neighbourhood would have 2 fixed sites - the school and
library - and then others dependent on community needs/interests
A handout was given.
- Group Discussion Spryfield Area Community
Discussion focussed on what is needed - who needs access, where is the
access needed (possible sites) and what question/concerns do people have.
A second meeting will be called. It can be held in the Wm Spry Centre again.
