Prince George Social Plan Powered By Docstoc
					The Community Planning Council of Prince George was organized in 1996.
Its initial objective was to create a social plan for a community in
order to guide a social development. The Social Plan was presented by the
Community Planning Council of Prince George in 2002 as an addition to the
Official Community Plan. The Official Community Plan investigates the
City of Prince George considering it as a diverse community that gives
opportunities for everyone for housing, employment, education, health,
quality of life, welfare and the cultural life of Prince George
residents. The Prince George Social Plan is an additional document for
the OCP. It gives the strategy of city policies and bylaw review. The
City has many ongoing efforts that are fulfilled by the Social Plan. They
are the following: Greening of the downtown; Economic growth; Safety
improvement in the downtown; Housing strategy; Neighborhood plan
development; Residential development; Social service provision in the
downtown; Improvement of recreational opportunities for young and elderly
people. Social Plan helps to guarantee that social factors are regarded
at the period of decision-making. A good example can be that during
report and bylaw preparation for land use modifications, the social
influences can be regarded together with land use effects. This data can
be given to Council who will make the final decision. More than that,
when principal bylaw revisions take place, Social Plan initiatives can
guide the form and content of the bylaw. Prince George Social Plan
contains the following aspects: 1. Housing. The Rental Assistance Program
helps low-income families to rent from any landlord with rental
assistance administered by the Prince George's County. It has the
opportunities for families to live outside of areas of poverty or racial
concentration. 2. The Welfare Programs. The Welfare Program gives Housing
Choice Vouchers to families who have a critical housing need to get
employment. Housing assistance is added with other resources such as job
training or childcare. 3. Rental Allowance Program. The Rental Allowance
Program is a program that gives rental assistance payments to lower
income homeless people. The goal of the Rental Allowance Program is to
demonstrate that these families can return to long-term housing self-
sufficiency following a short-term period of subsidy payments. 4. Health.
The purposes of the Social Plan in the aspect of health are to educate
the community in family health issues that promotes healthier children,
adults and communities; to give educational chance that will help
individual, family, and community health, and others.
