The Town of Essex is seeking to hear what town residences want to see in future planning of parks, recreation and culture.

The town is in the process of formulating a Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan to identify gaps in service and to help direct the future development and growth of parks and open spaces, recreational facilities, leisure opportunities, and recreation and culture programs over the next ten years or more, and they stress that public input is very important to this process.

“We want to hear from everyone – residents, user groups, parents, youth, seniors, and anyone who has ideas about improvements to facilities and programs that will help us to enhance how we support parks, recreation and culture in our town,” says Doug Sweet, Director of Community Services.

Residents and facility users are encouraged to attend one of the three open house meetings scheduled from 5:30pm to 7pm on Wednesday, June 11th at the Harrow and Colchester South Community Centre, Tuesday, June 17th at the Essex Centre Sports Complex, and Thursday, June 19th at the McGregor Community Centre.

In addition to meeting with residents and listening to their concerns at the open houses, the Town is also interested in collecting feedback through a special survey that can be accessed through the town’s website. Print copies of the survey will be available at all town recreational facilities.

The survey period will end on Friday, July 11th.

The results of these public engagement activities will be used to determine demand and satisfaction levels for services provided. It will also help Community Services to identify future needs and establish objectives and priorities.
