Parks & Recreation Master Plan for Creston and Areas A, B, C

The Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) is developing a Parks and Recreation Master Plan that encompasses the Town of Creston and the Electoral Areas A, B, and C. The Master Plan will guide the RDCK’s provision of parks and recreation opportunities and services to meet the needs of residents over the next 25 years.

Last summer, the public and stakeholders were invited to provide their input as part of a consultation process. A draft of the Master Plan has been developed and will be ready for review. Two open houses will be held during which key elements of the Parks and Recreation Master Plan will be displayed. A feedback form will be available for attendees to provide comment.

The draft Master Plan will be posted on the RDCK website following the open houses to allow the public and groups to review and provide feedback on the draft document.

Open House 1

Place: Riondel Community Centre (Seniors Room)

Date: Tuesday, May 14

Time: 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Format: Drop in, come and go

Open House 2

Place: Creston & District Community Complex (Erickson Room)

Date: Wednesday, May 15

Time: 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Format: Drop in, come and go

“The draft Master Plan is the product of community consultation and research, and it’s important for the public to know how their feedback has guided the process so far,” said Tanya Wall, Director of RDCK Electoral Area B and Chair of the Creston Valley Services Committee. “I encourage community members to attend one of the open houses and review components of the plan.”
