Draft 2 underway

over 3 years ago

After five months of community consultation, data collection, research and in-depth analysis, consulting firm Urban Systems consulting provided the City of Penticton a draft version of a Parks and Recreation Master Plan.

The Plan includes data and documents from various community engagement initiatives including survey results and summaries of input gathered from focus group sessions, online feedback and comments collected at the initial Open House.

The purpose of the Master Plan is to provide long-range direction to the City on the provision of parks and recreation services to residents and visitors. The Plan has been in the works since April and there has been extensive public outreach along the way with input from over 5000 residents.

The first draft was made available for public review on November 4. The community was encouraged to provide feedback on the draft by November 30 through the online survey.

The consultants developing the Master Plan together with City staff hosted an Open House on November 16 to discuss the draft and to encourage the community to share their feedback in person and to provide comment forms.

Draft 1 of the Parks & Recreation Master Plan as well as the Executive Summary is available in the Document Library of this website.

The consultants are currently compiling and reviewing all comments and feedback provided on Draft 1 and will be providing Draft 2 for community review and input in the new year.

Please go to the Q&A tab if you have any questions about the Parks & Recreation Master Plan.
