Parks Forestry and Recreation is developing a 20-year Facilities Master Plan (FMP) to guide decision-making and investment in parks and recreation facilities such as community centres, ice rinks, weight rooms, and sports fields. A staff report providing an update on the Parks and Recreation Facilities Master Plan was approved by Council's Executive Committee on October 20, 2015.
The first Facilities Master Plan survey launches today. This survey is an opportunity for people to tell us about their experience and use of parks and recreation facilities, and what's important to them. See the survey news release.
We want to hear from people who:
- Use indoor and outdoor facilities to skate, swim, exercise, play sports, permit space or attend programs.
- Live near, or are familiar with any type of indoor or outdoor facility
- Don't use parks and recreation facilities, but have thoughts and ideas to share
We encourage you to complete the survey, and to share it widely with your networks.
Public and stakeholder involvement is essential to develop this plan. The FMP engagement strategy includes multiple opportunities for participation through public surveys, town hall meetings, focus groups and online discussion questions. Details on these activities will be shared in the coming months and will be posted in the project website.
