Cumberland seeking recreation input

The Village of Cumberland is conducting a survey to determine the type of recreation projects most desired  in the community.

The survey is being conducted before the Village applies for government funding up to $450,000. The  grant application deadline is Dec. 28.

"This could have a very positive impact on the Village of Cumberland," acting CAO David Durrant said at Monday's council meeting.

The survey asks respondents to identify three projects from a list that includes a new playground, skateboard park, change rooms or refinished tennis courts at Village Park. A disc golf course, museum upgrades and an improved bike path/trail network are among the other proposals.

In an effort to increase physical activity, the Province will provide $30 million to communities to give families greater access to recreational infrastructure.
