Overview

The goal of the project is to anticipate and plan for the growing and changing recreational activity needs and desires within the community. When complete, the updated Leisure Activities Plan (LAP) will identify and prioritize community wants and desires and recommend a sound and realistic course of action to deliver recreation facilities, programs, and services to our residents.

The study will identify opportunities for recreation, and examine the need for a multi-use recreation facility.

Parks and recreation organizations have a great responsibility in the communities they serve. The mission of parks and recreation groups is not only to provide opportunities for citizens to be active and to get outdoors, but also to increase the general well-being and quality of life.

Project Process

The Town's philosophy is that feedback from the community residents and stakeholders is vital as we proceed with the project. We are committed to consulting with the community -- via a detailed survey, stakeholder interviews, and focus groups meetings.

The Town of The Blue Mountains Council is committed to a comprehensive review of recreation needs and trends in a fiscally responsible and timely manner to meet the needs and desires of our community.

Recently, the Town has contracted with Dunbar & Associates, a well known and experienced group with much municipal experience, to proceed with the LAP update 2020. We anticipate the planning phase, detailed review and reporting to Town Council to be substantially complete prior to year end 2020.
