Options for potential new south end recreation facility to be discussed at public meeting

Guelph, On, April 9, 2014 – On Tuesday, April 15, the City of Guelph will host a public meeting to provide an update on its recreation needs assessment and feasibility study.

The public will also have an opportunity to review options for a potential new recreation facility in the city’s south end. The options are based on input received from a survey, online discussion, and community focus/user group participation as well as population-growth related need and land availability.

Input received at the public meeting will be used to refine the options and develop concepts and recommendations about the City’s strategy for recreation needs now and in the future.

Over the next 20 years the city is expected to grow by more than 54,000 people and the City recognizes that access to recreational facilities and programs is a vital part of a healthy community.
