Presentation Given on Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design

Administration provided Council with an update on the Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) work being conducted, and the strategy being deployed with existing resources.

CPTED utilizes four key principles to impact human behavior and the safety of the use of community spaces with public access. These include Natural Access Control, Natural Surveillance, Territoriality, and Maintenance.

In 2020, Enforcement Services initiated a CPTED review of one Town owned property per year, with a goal of improving the public use of community spaces, improve safety and proactively reduce complaints. To date the skatepark, outdoor pool, and transit stops (initial fixed route) have been completed, and the recycle center is currently being reviewed.
