Declarations of Pecuniary Interest










1.         The Commissioner of Community Services provided a brief overview of the proposed project.


The Director of Recreation and Culture addressed Council with the ‘Recreation Playbook’ PowerPoint, including various aspects to the development of the Plan such as process, expectations, timelines, budget and cost recovery.  He advised that the Plan would be a ‘living’ document that was staff lead as opposed to consultant lead, and would be community driven. 


He presented and explained to Council the three approaches to developing the Plan being: a Compressed Approach, a Preferred Approach and a Delayed Approach, each one with varying timelines. He asked Council to indicate their preference.


A question and answer/comment period followed the presentation.


There was consensus by Council to pursue the Preferred Approach for development of the Plan.


Next steps include letting key organizations know through a formal process.




There being no further business the meeting adjourned at 11:26 a.m.
