City of Vernon wants input on parks plan

There will be consultation stations Saturday from 9 am to 6:30 p.m. at the Vernon Recreation Complex

The City of Vernon is asking for feedback on the draft parks master plan.

There will be consultation stations Saturday from 9 am to 6:30 p.m. at the Vernon Recreation Complex and Tuesday from 1 to 9 p.m. at the Vernon library.

“Additionally, community members can fill out a survey available on the city’s website,” said Tanya Laing Gahr, communications co-ordinator.

The goal of the parks master plan is to develop a vision for the city’s parks and trails system that can be achieved, sustained and managed responsibly.

“To develop this vision, the city initiated an extensive public and stakeholder engagement process during the spring and summer of 2014,” said Laing Gahr.

“The plan includes recommendations for future park land acquisition priorities, park improvement projects, new park development and trail development. There is also a 10-year playground structure replacement plan.”

An implementation strategy and funding sources are included in the draft plan.
