ALL taking a look at transportation issues
The Association for Life-Wide Living (ALL) is re-opening the discussion around transportation.
"We want to look at the transportation system we have in place now and see what we can do to make it more efficient," said Association for Life-Wide Living vice president Ted Wigglesworth.
The association was presented with a cheque for $3,000 from the Camrose and District Family Thrift Shop recently that it plans to use to investigate the options available for getting Camrose, county and other rural residents to and from medical appointments in urban areas.
"Our hope is to be able to invest in what has been done, what we have and what has been added, and what we can do to make things more effective," said Wigglesworth.
ALL is a registered society that advocates on behalf of the Battle River region for increased health and wellness with activities in the private and not-for-profit sector that emphasize the wisdom of making informed personal and community choices.
"As a growing, collective voice, rural Albertans identify and share creative ways to obtain and sustain life-wide living through good health, personal empowerment, education and inspiration," states an ALL strategic stakeholder plan
ALL's transportation plan seeks to engage representatives from various service sectors to inform potential users about access and rollout in the various communities.
"Region residents will be able to use the established communication networks and provide input through their local member in the Battle River Rural Health Network," states ALL. "Linkages with the counties, villages and the City of Camrose will enable people to obtain necessary information and services."
