About the project:
The aim of the Parks and Recreation Master Plan is to provide direction for managing and developing parks and recreation facilities, programs, infrastructure, resources, and investment over a twenty-year period. The scope of work for the project includes:
• Developing an overarching vision for parks and recreation in Squamish;
• Public and agency consultation;
• Recommendations on recreation programs and facilities, parks, trails, and related arts and culture;
• An implementation plan.
Recommendation costs and implementation will be addressed post-public forum in the Draft Master Plan document. The executive summary of the Draft Master Plan, including costing and timeline recommendations, will be presented to Council Committee of the Whole in mid to late November 2012.
Q: I cannot attend the forum but would like to provide feedback. How can I participate?
The recommendations display panels will be posted to the project webpage at: http://squamish.ca/node/1260 on Wednesday October 17th, 2012, along with an online feedback form to capture feedback from those who prefer to provide feedback electronically or are unable to attend the public forum.
