Consultants and city of Kimberley staff have been hard at work for over a year preparing the Parks and Facilities Master Plan and it is now complete.

The Plan will be presented to the community at an open house on April 16 at Centennial Hall. There will be two sessions. The afternoon session is from 1 to 3 p.m. This will deal specifically with the Master Plan. Staff will be on hand to answer questions.

In the evening from 5 to 8 p.m. you can once again look at the plan as part of the (Re)Discover Kimberley Community Group Showcase. You can also find out more about programs and activities available in Kimberley.

The purpose of the Parks and Facilities Master Plan is to guide council and staff on how to provide and invest unpacks and recreation facilities over the next ten years.

While developing the plan city staff was able to

• Analyze the current state of parks and recreation.

• Identify trends (emerging interests, changes in activity preferences, etc.).

• Establish focus areas for capital facility investment and programming.

• Identify opportunities to optimize service delivery.
