The Master Plan is a lon-term plan for the delivery of recreation services. It will help guide decisions related to current and future facilities, programs and events. Gathering responses from residents in the region is very important as the draft Master Plan is being reviewed. Please review the Master Plan Summary Document and share your thought by answering the questions found here: Please provide your responses by July 15th. Thank you!
