Municipality Launches Recreation Plan Engagement

INVERNESS COUNTY, UNAMA’KI – The Municipality of the County of Inverness, in partnership with Upland Planning + Design and REConsulting, is launching the community engagement portion of the Municipal Recreation Plan. This project will assess the current recreation services delivered by the Municipality and provide a guide for the future, based on the needs and values of the community. The Municipal Recreation Plan will include recommendations for facilities, programming, financing, and more. The resulting vision will enable meaningful and inclusive recreation experiences.

“This is an exciting opportunity for residents to share what is working and where the Municipality can improve its recreation services,” said Keith MacDonald, CAO of the Municipality of the County of Inverness. “This Recreation Plan will create a road map for recreation that reflects communities’ priorities.”

The Background Report for the project is available online at www.invernesscounty.ca/recreationplan. The document outlines recent trends in demographics and recreation, summarizes relevant plans and policies, and provides an inventory and analysis of the Municipality’s current services.

Surveys are available now for both adults and youth, where residents can share information on their participation in recreation. Surveys can be filled out online at www.invernesscounty.ca/recreationplan, or paper copies can be picked up at the Municipal Office in Port Hood at 86 High Street or 375 Main Street. This project will be developed in collaboration with the community, and there will be more opportunities to contribute following the release of the draft Recreation Plan.
