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.
