Hillsborough Community Spirit
Organization Sponsor: Adventure Group, The
This project addresses the problem of growing violence and vandalism in the community of Hillsborough. The project reflects the need for a more coordinated effort. This cooperative undertaking involves the Charlottetown Police Department, the Recreation Department, the Department of Public Works, and the project sponsor. These organisers will reduce crime by empowering community members and reviving the energy in the community. The first step will be to hold several community gatherings to bring youth, parents and seniors together to evaluate the assets and capacity that currently exist in the community. This assessment will feed the development of a community action plan, which will outline activities and events that will be undertaken to revitalize the community. With an eye to the future, the action plan will lead to the development of a sustainability plan, which will ensure that the project maintains its momentum.
