Draft Master Plan, Draft Idlewild Community Survey and Open House Information Panels Available Online Now

Cranbrook, BC (November 25, 2015) -- The City of Cranbrook has been busy updating our Parks and Recreation Master Plan. The last plan was prepared in 1995, set the framework for many of the facilities we now enjoy, such as Rotary Way Cycle/Walk trail, as well as the new arena and aquatic centre. The new Master Plan will guide the planning, design and use of parks, trails, recreation facilities, and community programs/services for the next 10 years.

Since April 2015, the community has provided input on the Plan through a variety of avenues. In addition to a community survey, the community was engaged through nine visioning workshops including two general public sessions. Citizens were also encouraged to send emails or letters at any time.

Now, a draft Master Plan has been completed and it is time to ask for your participation once more.

You are invited to an open house on Thursday November 26th, from 3pm to 9pm, at Western Financial Place to review and comment on the draft recommendations for the City of Cranbrook Parks and Recreation Master Plan.

For those unable to attend the open house event, the panels will be on display beginning in the afternoon on Wednesday, November 25th, and be up through the open house event on Thursday evening. Please drop in at your leisure, or during the hockey game to have a look. The panels can also be viewed here.
