Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen seeks input about parks

Community and resident feedback will be used for Parks, Trails and Recreation Master Plan

The Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen is preparing its Parks, Trails and Recreation Master Plan.

The public is invited to participate in a survey that will help shape the future of parks, trails, and recreational activities and spaces in the region.

Survey results will be used to ensure the right mix of facilities and programs are provided while also protecting environmentally sensitive areas. The plan will also serve as a guiding document for corporate decision-making over the next 10 years.

“The regional district is encouraging you to take a few moments to complete the survey to provide feedback on programs, services and amenities that are important to you,” said Karla Kozakevich, chair of the regional district. “This information will help the regional district identify key areas in the plan, which is why it is crucial to hear from all communities and age groups.”

The information gathered through the survey will help the regional district understand what residents value and would like to see developed as a clear vision for the future of parks, trails and recreation services across the regional district.

Indigenous communities and a variety of community partners and organizations will also be invited to take part in virtual meetings and workshops in the coming weeks. The public engagement process will run until May 15.

Further information about the plan can be found online at rdosregionalconnections.ca/ptr-master-plan.

The plan will assist with the regional district’s recreation goal of supporting healthy individuals and communities across the region. Parks, trails and recreation facilities and programs are essential to quality of life, the protection of the natural environment, strengthening the economy and the overall health of communities.
