Strafford Regional Planning Commission (SRPC) is partnering with Strafford County Public Health Network on a new project called Communities for Healthy Aging Transitions (CHAT). This project seeks to identify strengths and opportunities for each community in the region providing an inclusive, welcoming, supportive, and healthy environment for people of all ages.
To accomplish this, many different outreach approaches have been prepared including a survey that was launched on Feb. 12. The survey will allow the CHAT team to hear from the people that know their communities best, those who live and work there!
In addition to the survey, the CHAT team is also preparing to launch a postcard art activity. This is a more creative method to gather input via printed postcards which will be delivered and handed out across the region. If you have a group interested in completing the activity SRPC staff can coordinate delivery of copies, and can even provide pre-posted versions to be mailed back. The postcard template is also available online for digital submissions, or to print. Digital submissions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The CHAT team is also scheduling community Zoom forums in the region, so stay tuned to the event section on their homepage or the CHAT project page.
