Share your ideas and help shape a vision for recreational facilities and public space in Moss Park!
Join the City and The 519 in a public conversation on the possible redevelopment of John Innes Community Centre, Moss Park Arena and the park space around them. New facilities would be designed to meet the needs of local residents and people who use Moss Park.
We know that the existing facilities and programs are important to people who use them. The consultation will help ensure current uses, programs and services are preserved and at the same time develop shared community priorities for new programs, expanded facilities, partnerships and public spaces that help respond to neighbourhood and community needs.
How will your advice be used?
Over the course of the summer, advice from the community will be recorded, summarized and shared through website postings and meeting presentations and circulated to all those who wish to stay in touch. A final report summarizing the consultation and the results will be made public and presented to a committee of City Council by the end of 2016. If the redevelopment is approved, local residents and people who use Moss Park will have more opportunities to shape plans for programming and activities.
When is the first public event?
Our first community roundtable is on May 31 at John Innes Community Centre (6:30 pm). We hope to see you there to learn more about the consultation process and how you can get involved and stay connected throughout the process.
Are there other ways to get involved?
We’re also holding a number of small meetings with groups of community members and Moss Park facility users to gather their advice. If you are part of a group who you think we should meet with, please let us know.
