What are environmental strategies?
These are ideas and actions that address the “local reasons behind youth problems.”
They change the fabric of our community – the environment where we make our choices. Here are the types of strategies the CTC Coalition is looking at:
Enhancing Access & Reducing Barriers
This involves making it easier to use or access a service that will keep families strong and healthy.
CTC will support community-wide recognition for youth, adults and businesses that are working towards a safer community.
The way our public spaces, like parks, are designed is important. Use of lighting and signage can help prevent illegal activity.
Modifying & Changing Policy
Any policy or procedure to prevent drug-use should be clear, well-known and enforced.
