Parks, food security and public safety on agenda as city prepares for neighbourhood meetings

With another year of neighbourhood planning meetings set to kick off in January, the city’s director of planning and development wants more input on public safety, youth, food security, and parks and recreation.

Department head John Guenther said the city wants to add to and update several sections of its community plan during the next calendar year, and to do that they’ll need lots of involvement from local citizens.

Parks and recreation is the biggest issue this year, as administrators begin to create a department master plan.

The first neighbourhood meeting will take place in Ward 1, at Parkland Community Hall on Thursday, Jan. 5. The second is scheduled to take place in Ward 2 at City Hall on Thursday, Jan. 12. Both meetings start at 6:30 p.m.
