Parks and Recreation Master Plan

Community engagement for Draft #2 of the Parks and Recreation Master Plan has wrapped up and summaries are available for review in the documents section. Feedback from the community during the engagement activities reinforced the need to address concerns about commercial activity in public parks before the Parks and Recreation Master Plan can move forward. As a result, the Steering Committee and key stakeholders are working with the City to develop the necessary policies and procedures to regulate activity in a manner that meets the expectations of the community at the same time as the remaining needs of the plan are addressed.
