Gathering feedback from local and regional residents, as well as new and long-term visitors is a crucial part of the Parks and Recreation Master Plan planning process. The City of Port Colborne has launched the online and print survey that will be available until Feb. 21, 2019.
Surveys will also be available to complete either online or in print at City facilities, including City Hall (66 Charlotte Street); Roselawn Centre (296 Fielden Avenue); Port Colborne Public Library (310 King Street); and Vale Health & Wellness Centre (550 Elizabeth Street).
The survey will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. Everyone who completes the survey will be entered into a draw to win one of three Port Colborne prize packages. Prize #1: $50 credit toward a City of Port Colborne P.A Day Active Camps program Prize #2: Two VIP Tickets to “A Tribute to Johnny Cash – Walk the Line” at the Roselawn Centre for the Arts (April 6, 2019) Prize #3: Three-month membership at the YMCA
The City of Port Colborne is currently in the process of developing a Parks and Recreation Master Plan to guide the City’s direction for parks, fields, trails, recreational facilities, events, recreation and leisure programming for the next 10 years. The City has commissioned MacNaughton Hermsen Britton Clarkson Planning Limited (MHBC) to develop the Master Plan, the City’s first one. The principal objectives of the project are to document current recreation assets and capacity, and develop a series of recommendations and an action plan to accommodate the current and future recreational needs of the City.
