Town of Espanola police board to receive Community Safety and Well-being Grant

The Town of Espanola received some great news late last week to help the region develop a community safety and well-being plan.

The town and its partner communities, the townships of Sable-Spanish, Nairn & Hyman and Baldwin will share in a grant of just over $281,000 over the next three years under the Ministry of the Solicitor General’s Community Safety and Policing Grant.

Espanola Police Services Board Chair, Bill Foster says the proposal submitted by the police board focused on resources to implement the plan bringing together the relevant organizations in the region.

He adds the main priorities identified in the plan developed last year through community consultation are mental health and addictions, affordable housing, access to services, and seniors.

With the funding in place, stakeholders will now work together to move forward with the plan.
