PITT MEADOWS, BC – The City of Pitt Meadows is beginning the process of creating its first Parks, Recreation and Culture (PRC) Master Plan. The plan will help guide programs, amenities, facilities and services related to parks, recreation, arts and culture and provide direction for future priorities and decisions in these areas over the next 15 years.

“Our parks, recreation, arts and cultural facilities are the heart of our community – bringing people together, creating lasting memories and building a strong community,” says Mayor Bill Dingwall. “Whether you enjoy cycling along our many trails, playing at our parks, visiting the art gallery, or exercising at our Fitness Centre, we are looking forward to engaging with residents of all ages to create a community-led plan that will serve our needs today and for many years to come.”

The 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 to ensure that the plan aligns with the community’s needs and priorities.

Public engagement begins this month with a draft of the plan expected in fall 2021.

“Resident and stakeholder engagement will be integral to the PRC Master Plan process,” says Chief Administrative Officer Mark Roberts. “Feedback from the community will help us to evaluate existing operations and guide the long-term development of these services so that they reflect our community’s vision.”

This will be the first PRC Master Plan since the joint model between the City of Maple Ridge and City of Pitt Meadows was dissolved in 2016 and the previous plan created in 2010. Pitt Meadows residents will receive a postcard with a link to an online household questionnaire. The deadline to complete this questionnaire is January 31, 2021. Complete the questionnaire by January 31 and be entered to win gift cards to use at local businesses! Watch the introductory video.
