Council for the Rural Municipality of Hanover has identified seniors housing as one of its priorities for the next two years.

The commitment was made at last weekend's strategic planning session. In Hanover, council and staff take part in a strategic planning session every two years. Last weekend, council came up with five major points it resolved to concentrate on over the next 24 months.

In terms of seniors housing, Reeve Stan Toews says he does not know what form this will take on.

"There is probably some seniors housing lacking," admits Toews. "We are not talking personal care homes or anything, this is like 55-plus type retirement homes."

A second priority is economic development. This includes new business as well as internal relocation of existing businesses. It also means redesigning the Hanover Community Development Corporation.

Toews notes a third priority is recreation and to continue providing support to Hanover's recreation centres through operational responsibility assistance and efficiencies in staff and equipment use. Last weekend, the group reviewed the merits of regional facilities.

The fourth priority is residential development in Grunthal.

"To continue to assist the community to try to stimulate the development of housing there," notes Toews. "Which has kind of slacked off in the last while."

And, the final priority is to build and maintain regional partnerships. Toews says this includes continuing to harbour regional partnerships in all municipal aspects such as water stewardship, firefighting, recreation, planning and infrastructure.
