The Strathcona Regional District (SRD) is researching opportunities for regional collaboration in recreation services through a feasibility study and survey conducted by project consultants, RCS Strategies.
“This study is important for us to better understand how to best provide regional recreation opportunities in the future. We encourage residents within the region to participate in the survey because it will help the project team better understand the recreational activities that are most important, discover local recreation trends, and, identify opportunities for the various organization and local governments in the region to better work together” said Renée Laboucane, SRD Manager, Strategic Initiatives.
The regional recreation services feasibility study project will:
- Analyze existing recreation services, assets, facilities and programs currently available through local governments within the SRD;
- Identify future needs and trends;
- Identify a range of collaborative options and models; and
- Recommend potential operational efficiencies (training, program software, purchasing, etc.) that could arise as a result of increased collaboration and/or an integrated recreation services model.
This project is scheduled for completion in early 2023 and the feasibility study will be used as a resource by the SRD Board and local governments to inform future discussions and decision-making regarding recreation.
