Recreation Centre 10 Year Strategy Public Engagement Wrap-up
Thank you for participating in the public feedback process for the Recreation Centre 10 Year Strategy this fall. Your time and effort in our public engagement opportunities is appreciated, and we wanted to close off this phase by recapping the November 22 Council Meeting.
The Dr. Duncan Murray Recreation Centre 10 Year Strategy was presented to Council on November 22. The report shared the public and stakeholder feedback that was received this fall, and outlined high level cost estimates on the components of Concept 1.
“Revitalization of the recreation centre is in progress to
address the current and future needs of our community.”
- Mayor Rob Mackin
After reviewing the report in detail with David Edmonds, architect with GEC Architecture, and key members of administration, Council's next step is to obtain a detailed design to determine variables such as size and quality of additions and renovations, and how they affect the costs of Concept 1, which includes a new aquatic centre and fieldhouse.
Council wishes to advance the strategy through responsible actions that seek to evaluate the cost to develop new infrastructure, rehabilitate existing infrastructure, and better understand and plan for operational costs and maintenance of the centre. With that intention, Council directed administration to bring forward in the 2017 capital budget funding that will further advance the 10 Year Recreation Centre Strategy.
