Building Burnaby's Community Safety Plan

Community Safety Plan Image

Help us build a safer city, together! The City is developing its first-ever Community Safety Plan. The goal is to build on our strengths and seeks opportunities for us to grow into an even safer city.

We hope you’ll join us as we explore how we can keep our community safe and maintain a high quality of life for current and future residents.  Once complete, the Community Safety Plan will be a high-level strategic plan to help guide the decisions of the City and community partners about community safety initiatives for years to come. 

Thank You!

Our public survey for the Burnaby Community Safety Plan is now complete and we heard a lot of great ideas and feedback from residents. More than 920 people filled out the survey, and we reached more than 700 more people at open houses, events and celebrations around town in June and July. All this great input helps us as we enter the next phase. 

What's Next?

We are now analyzing the responses received and developing a draft of the city’s first Community Safety Plan. We anticipate presenting a draft plan to City Council in early 2020.
