Play. Grow. Create.
The City is embarking on an exciting journey of creating Pitt Meadows first independent Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan (PRC Master Plan) to help guide programs, amenities, facilities and services for the next 15 years. The PRC Master Plan is being developed with extensive engagement to provide a community-led plan that enriches the heart of our community and reflects the future vision of Pitt Meadows parks, recreation, art and culture.
As part of this planning process there are three important reports being created that will help determine how we want to play, grow and create in our community. The Current State Report summarizes the background research conducted in phases 1 and 2 of the engagement timeline below. The "What We Heard" Engagement Summary Report is a summary of the extensive community engagement that was conducted in January 2021 during Phase 3.
The next steps in the process will be the completion of the draft Master Plan, which will be available for review and input by the community in the coming months.
The purpose of this project is to prepare a 15-year PRC Master Plan that will provide a framework for decisions related to parks, recreation, arts and culture land, facilities, parks, amenities, programs, and resources for the City of Pitt Meadows. This will enable Council and staff to plan for the future and to guide new development with consideration for parks and recreation.
The five-phase process will include a review of all the City’s parks, recreation, arts and cultural facilities, programs and services and will involve extensive engagement with stakeholders and residents of all ages to ensure that the plan aligns with the community’s needs and priorities. Public engagement began in January 2021 with a draft of the plan expected in fall 2021.
The PRC Master Plan will be the City’s first since the joint recreation model between the City of Maple Ridge and City of Pitt Meadows was dissolved in 2016 and the previous plan created in 2010.
Public engagement began in early 2021 with a resident questionnaire, youth survey, community group questionnaire, and stakeholder discussion sessions.
We heard from:
- 889 resident questionnaires representing 2,268 individuals 120 youth participants
- 19 local organizations
- 24 stakeholder organizations
Thank you to all who submitted their valuable feedback and stay tuned for the next steps.
