Phase One of Recovery Plan set to be announced next week

The Wood Buffalo Recovery Committee will be presenting the first phase of their long-term recovery plan next week.

As part of the plan is re-occupation which is close to being done, just as soon as the Chief medical officer of health gives the green light for Phase two of Abasand and Beacon Hill.

Adam Hardiman with the Wood Buffalo Recovery Task Force says the recovery plan will see a different path after phase two re-occupation.

“This is just a shift in how we have to think about recovery, the rebuild is going to get going and that’s going to be a big year but recovery is a broader thing, there is economic factors, social factors, emotional factors.”

There are still many other factors of the plan such as economy, rebuild, social and emotional.

Chair of the Wood Buffalo Recovery Committee, Jeanette Bancarz tells mix news the goal of the plan is to help keep the committee and the work being done on track.

“Now that we have that in place, we know basically on a week on week basis things we need to make sure we’re doing and outcomes that need to be achieved by certain time frames,” she said. “So, we’ll have that to guide us on what we will be engaging the community on.”

Other priorities the plan is focusing on is small businesses, social profit sector and metal health.

The committee will meet on Wednesday, November 9 at their new time of 6 p.m.
