Round One of Public Engagement:
An online survey was hosted from February 1 to March 8, 2021. The purpose of the first round of public engagement was to hear from residents about their personal experiences in parkland within the community, the issues and opportunities observed, and how park projects should be prioritized. With almost 400 survey submissions, there were many ideas for how parks should be planned and managed into the future. Not all ideas are feasible, but staff have attempted to balance these requests. A ‘What We Heard’ summary has been prepared for public review.
Round Two of Public Engagement:
COVID-19 continues to limit the opportunity for in-person public engagement, however, we would like to gather feedback on the ‘What We Heard’ summary and high-level possible park opportunities. After your review of the attached document, a short survey is found below. The survey will be available from July 29 until August 31.
While it is important to note that the highlighted park opportunities alone do not define a capital funding plan, the attached document is a consolidation of public feedback while incorporating what is known about the physical landscape, land ownership, existing park facilities, community demographics, and guiding municipal plans and policy
Requests for additional project information, questions, and comments can be directed to Stephen Cushing, Landscape Architect, Parks and Recreation.
