·1 min read

NORTH HURON – The Township of North Huron is requesting input from community members on the creation of a Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan.

The township sent out a press release inviting residents to visit their website to learn more about the plan and to complete a survey on the subject.

“We want to know how our residents use parks and facilities, as well as how we can improve public spaces and services for future generations,” the release said.

The Master Plan will guide decision-making over the next ten years and includes:

• recreation and cultural facilities;

• programs, activities, and events;

• parks, open spaces and trails; and

• service delivery policies and practices.

“The delivery of well-balanced parks and recreation services plays a key role in the health of our residents and overall well-being of our community,” Reeve Bernie Bailey said.

“To help us achieve this goal, the township is undertaking a Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan to ensure we can provide a high quality of life for years to come,” he added. “We encourage all of our residents to get involved and provide input so that we have a strong and healthy community in the future.”

The release said that the input from the community will help to shape the Master Plan and will help the township and its partners to make strategic investments “to encourage a healthy and active community, strong economy, and sustainable environment.”

Residents can visit the township’s website, www.northhuron.ca to learn more about the plan and how to get involved.

Additional consultation will occur in when the draft Master Plan is assembled to seek community feedback.
