The City of Moose Jaw is developing a Parks and Recreation Master Plan, hoping to provide a clear vision for Parks and Recreation services in the city for the next 10 years.
To develop the plan, the city has partnered with EDS Group and Quantum Recreation, who will have representatives visit Moose Jaw over the next several months to conduct community consultation with residents and stakeholder groups.
EDS Group will use the data collected from these meetings to prepare a summary by the end of June, and a draft master plan will be prepared over the summer months for further review in the fall.
The final plan is expected to be presented to city council by the end of 2022.
“Through extensive public consultation, the plan will provide community-driven recommendations on service delivery, programming, and infrastructure needs which will strategically guide the Parks and Recreation Department over the next decade based on annual funding available for those services and facilities,” said Derek Blais, Director of Parks and Recreation.
“As a department, we want to ensure that we have the recreational amenities and services in place that provide a high quality of life for our residents while helping to attract new people to Moose Jaw. We are very excited to partner with EDS Group and Quantum Recreation to leverage the extensive experience they bring in developing Parks and Recreation Master Plans in other communities and we are looking forward to getting the process started in Moose Jaw with the launch of our household survey this week.”
The Parks and Recreation Master Plan household survey will be available until April 25.
As an added incentive, households that complete the survey will have the option to enter for a chance at one of three, three-month family recreation passes valued at over $300 each.
