No notes for slide
  • I am taking recommendations and highlighting some of the findings from Final Report of the ASHRA Study. I have scanned and made copies of in-depth parts of the Report that you may want to utilize in more detail and asked Gary to make them available to you. KC
  • See scanned notes.
  • See scanned notes
  • Our research was based on the Social Determinants of Health and Gary has a copy of the scanned Report. The SDH are part of the Healthy Aging Community Initiative as Health Promotion /Illness Prevention. NBNPHA is really this principle.
  • In this windshield survey, we see possibilities for further planning including for NBNPHA: Developing a branch that sets up a trustworthy home repair division where contractors must be bonded by an insurance company to be registered with the NBNPHA – Division. There are 5 bungalows in this block and 3 have complete basement apartments.
  • This is The Hill neighbourhood in Fredericton, a surprisingly generous community!
  • What you see in this slide showedpotential for infill housing for the neighbourhood. (Will tell the story)
  • To the right of the garage is an other possible infill site. In Australia, the garage would soon become a Man Shed for older men to gather and do what men do in a tool shed – the equivalent to the quilting bee that women use as a work and social get-together.
  • The lot for the new house on the corner was previously owned by a church and a young-older couple built a bungalow for their aging-in-place home. Around the crescent is a number of small bungalows where seniors live.
  • Now for a change of pace and place. This is site of the former Issak’s Way Restaurant that burned at Thanksgiving 2012.
  • The Town would like to see a 3 to 6 story building replace it. Collaboration and Partnerships?
  • The church next door was saved from the fire and provides space for community groups to meet. Churches and their congregations are seeking new directions.
  • In provinces such as NB, people in general want to stay in their own communities and are looking for access to special places to walk and to play. We need to think about accessible places to meet, exercise and to make new friends. Will the NBNPHA support by collaborating and partnering with developer and contractors to get the message out?
