Would you like to offer input on an important document in parks and recreation planning?
The City of Courtenay has developed a draft Parks and Recreation Master Plan based on community and stakeholder input. The plan is available for review and feedback by the community until Friday, Feb. 22.
“We’re really pleased with the level of engagement and important feedback we heard from the community as we developed this plan,” says Dave Snider, the City’s director of recreation and culture. “Now, we’re connecting with the community again to see if we got it right.”
The draft plan started with a comprehensive inventory and preliminary analysis of parks, recreation and cultural facilities. Through community consultation, a vision was developed along with goals and objectives for all aspects of parks and recreation in Courtenay.
The 10-year guiding document addresses parkland distribution, trail gaps, natural areas, and park features including sports fields, play areas, dog parks, courts, skate parks and community gardens. The recreation section addresses the Lewis Centre, Florence Filberg Centre, LINC Youth Centre, Native Sons Hall and recreation programs.
The draft plan can be viewed at courtenay.ca/parksrecplan. A paper copy will be available at City Hall, Lewis Centre, Filberg Centre, The LINC Youth Centre, Public Works or at the Courtenay Library.
