Okotoks launches parks and recreation plan initiativeTo guide Town for next 20 years
Okotoks has launched a new parks and recreation initiative that it hopes will guide planning efforts for the growing community south of Calgary.
The master plan is designed to provide an overall framework to guide the development, delivery, and continuous improvement of parks and recreation programs, services, and facilities for the next 10 to 20 years.
"Parks and recreation are important services that help us enjoy a great quality of life in Okotoks. The Recreation, Parks and Leisure Master Plan is a key initiative to help us effectively plan for the future of these services," said Mayor Bill Robertson.
"I strongly encourage all community members to share their opinions when given the opportunity."
The Town expects to complete the master plan by the end of this year.
In the meantime, the Town is seeking feedback from area residents. A letter with a unique survey access code will be mailed to Okotoks households in early June.
Community organizations and stakeholders will also be invited to provide their input throughout the process, said the Town. For more information, visit okotoks.ca/RecMasterPlan.
