Social planning focuses on improving well-being and quality of life in a community

It involves working with community members, non-profit agencies, District Departments, other levels of government and local businesses to address topics such as housing affordability, heritage, arts and culture, accessibility, and services for children, youth and families and senior citizens.

A socially sustainable community ensures residents have access to affordable housing and active seniors have housing options that allow them to remain within the District. In a sustainable community protective services are visible and approachable, and help maintain a healthy social fabric.
