Lethbridge City Council voted on Tuesday to unanimously adopt the new Recreation and Culture Master Plan.
The Master Plan outlines new strategies and policies to help guide city council and the City of Lethbridge forward in various aspects of Recreation and Culture’s project planning and service delivery.
Input into the plan included recommendations from the KPMG report and resulted in significant efficiencies being realized. The City also carried out broad consultation with various community stakeholders.
“This Master Plan will provide direction and guidance towards how we deliver Recreation and Culture services to the community,” said Robin Harper, general manager for the City of Lethbridge’s Recreation and Culture department. “The implementation of the Master Plan will ensure services are aligned with City priorities and it has a desired outcome of providing people with opportunities to be healthy, creative and connected to each other and to nature through meaningful public recreation and culture services.”
According to a release from the City, the Master Plan also “discusses potential impacts that Recreation and Culture programs and services can have on climate change and the environment, as well as the possible impacts climate change may have on the future of programs and services. Recreation and Culture will continue to work with internal and external stakeholders in an effort to reduce Green House Gas Emissions (GHGs) and adapting to the impacts of climate change.”
The City of Lethbridge will post the document in its entirety on the City’s website soon.
