Network With Nature – Your Play Your Way
Take part in designing future plans for Parks, Trails and Greenspaces
The 2020 – 2030 Open Space Master Plan is underway, and we are looking to you to help us plan what our parks, trails and open spaces will look like. Every resident has a voice in this conversation and together we can plan spaces that will increase the quality of life in High River.
“This is a great opportunity to get involved and we want to hear from everyone,” said Mayor Craig Snodgrass. “A few weeks ago, we engaged our Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council (MYAC) on the topic of the future of our parks, and I am extremely pleased by their level of enthusiasm and awareness of the importance of this opportunity. I hope that everyone who loves our parks will see the importance of filling in the survey and attending the workshop that kicks off the start of developing a plan for our parks for the next ten years.”
We are engaging with residents in a number of ways:
A PUBLIC WORKSHOP
Please arrive at 6 pm to take part in all the activities and discussions. Light food and drinks will be provided to participants.
Date: Tuesday, November 26, 2019
Time: 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Location: Munroe Barn, Sheppard Family Park
Who should attend? All residents and park users have a stake in shaping future park plans. The 2020 – 2030 Open Space Master Plan will determine such things as the importance of parks and trails and how to enhance their role in the community, the role of natural areas and identify opportunities to enhance High River’s green spaces. Be part of the discussion.
Workshop Format: This is a workshop with a light agenda, fun activities and a workshop host. Please arrive at 6 pm to take part in all the planned activities.
Everyone is invited to complete an online survey, click here to fill it out. There will also be paper copies available at the workshop and at locations around Town.
“High River has 700 acres of parks and green spaces that are busy year ‘round offering everything from walking and cycling to kayaking, wildlife viewing and events,” adds Mayor Snodgrass. “By looking after our parks, trails and greenspaces, we are putting people first, as our parks play a key role in the quality of life for residents of all ages”
