Town Seeks Public Input on Recreation and Cultural Needs

The Town of Conception Bay South has started the development of a Recreation and Cultural Master Plan to address activity and infrastructure needs within the growing community. Through a public engagement process, the Town is encouraging residents to provide their input on how it can improve recreational and cultural resources.

“Conception Bay South is the largest town in this province. With approximately 27,000 residents, we have a responsibility to respond to the growing needs of our community, and the best way for us to know what those needs are is to hear from our residents directly. That’s why a significant component of developing this plan includes consultation with our various stakeholders,” said Councillor Shelley Moores, Recreation and Leisure Services Committee Chair.

The final draft of the Recreation and Cultural Master Plan is now complete and will be presented to the public on November 25, 2021, from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m., at the Royal Canadian Legion, 60 Legion Road. The presentation will include a review of existing programs and infrastructure and identify trends and opportunities that are unique to the town’s demographic. It will consider the need for new facilities, increased open space, and increased opportunities for leisure and wellness activities.

All interested members of the public are invited to attend this presentation and must pre-register. For those unable to attend, the presentation will be streamed on the Town’s YouTube channel. Residents will have until December 21, 2021 to review the plan and submit their feedback online.

“Our town sits on the edge of nature – we’re surrounded by renowned walking trails, spectacular marinas, and sport facilities set along the ocean’s edge.  We’re a world-class archaeology destination, a nature lover’s paradise, and we’ve hosted some of the most high-class recreation events this province has ever seen. We’re quite excited to see where this master plan takes us as we expand upon the needs of Conception Bay South,” said Councillor Moores.

The Recreation and Cultural Master Plan will enable the Town to build on its vision of being a family-oriented community of choice that provides an enhanced quality of life in a vibrant, evolving town.
