A collection of municipalities in the Mountain View region are putting together a parks, recreation and culture master plan.
The Towns of Olds, Didsbury, Carstairs and Sundre, the Village of Cremona and Mountain View County has begun the process of collaboratively developing a master plan for the first time since 2009.
The master plan will serve as a guide, to help communities in the region make informed decisions about the future of parks, recreation and cultural services.
“A regional plan serves all our citizens well, Olds is looking forward to the next generation of what our parks, recreation, and culture facilities are going to be. This is an opportunity for all residents to share their vision for building our future together,” said Town of Olds CAO Michael Merritt.
The municipal partners have hired recreation, parks, culture and tourism planning firm Expedition Management Consulting to assist in the plan’s development. The project is expected to be complete this November.
Residents, youths and stakeholder groups will be asked for their opinions on what’s important in each community and the each. There will be several opportunities to provide input toward the master plan, including surveys, digital engagement sessions and interviews.
