As part of the on-going community engagement phase of the new Community Housing and Homelessness Integrated Plan (CHHIP) development, residents are invited to participate in community conversations about housing and homelessness in Red Deer. 

Starting July 15, a series of Design Labs will offer a place for creative, cross-disciplinary innovation in the development of the Community Housing and Homelessness Integrated Plan. Design Labs are an opportunity for citizens to collaborate, provide ideas and recommendations with others on their own areas of interest. These Design Labs will be hosted at a variety of times and locations across the community. 

To learn more about the Design Labs and to register for a session, please visit: www.reddeer.ca/CHHIP

Driven by a Council Ad Hoc Committee, the overall goal of the Community Housing & Homelessness Integrated Plan is to develop a strategic and innovative housing plan that will help achieve the community's housing goals. 

“These interactive, solution-focused conversations will build on what we’ve already heard through our survey and open house, and will provide us with valuable insight as the committee develops the CHHIP,” said Ryan Veldkamp, Social Planning Supervisor for The City of Red Deer. “As a community plan, it’s integral, that it is reflective of the community’s needs.”
