first_imgLes résidents du Cap-Breton auront bientôt plus de possibilités et plus d’endroits pour être actifs physiquement grâce à un investissement de 514 825 $ du programme de développement des installations de loisirs de la province. Le ministre de la Promotion et de la Protection de la santé, Barry Barnet, a annoncé les investissements aujourd’hui, 13 juin, qui seront faits aux groupes communautaires ainsi qu’aux organismes et aux associations à but non lucratif, aux municipalités et aux associations du Cap-Breton. « Donner aux enfants, aux familles et aux personnes âgées des endroits accessibles pour faire du sport et pratiquer des activités de loisirs est un élément clé de notre plan pour construire des collectivités plus sûres et en meilleure santé, » a déclaré M. Barnet. « Ces groupes ont travaillé fort pour améliorer leurs collectivités et nous sommes fiers de les appuyer avec ces investissements. » Les subventions serviront à développer des réseaux de sentiers, à construire et à rénover les installations communautaires, ainsi qu’à améliorer les terrains municipaux de soccer et de football. Le programme de développement des installations de loisirs a un budget de trois millions de dollars qui aide les municipalités et les groupes communautaires à planifier, à construire, à rénover, à conserver ou à acquérir des installations pour que les gens puissent s’adonner à des activités récréatives. Parmi les projets admissibles, il y a les centres communautaires, les piscines, les installations sportives, les parcs, les terrains de jeu, les sentiers et d’autres installations extérieures. Les groupes communautaires aménagent des installations pour augmenter la participation du public dans le sport et les activités physiques récréatives. Ils travaillent avec le personnel de Promotion et Protection de la santé pour planifier des projets et présenter des demandes de subventions. Le programme de développement des installations de loisirs offre jusqu’à un tiers des coûts en immobilisations; c’est aux collectivités de trouver le reste du montant nécessaire. Le programme aide à créer l’équivalent d’environ 14,5 millions de dollars en infrastructure dans 84 organisations. « Notre but est de faire de la Nouvelle-Écosse la province la plus en santé du pays, » a déclaré M. Barnet. « Les annonces aujourd’hui représentent une autre étape positive pour atteindre ce but. » Le développement des installations de loisirs est un aspect des engagements de la province d’investir 68 millions de dollars dans l’infrastructure sportive et récréative d’ici 2017.last_img
