The City of Kelowna wants feedback on indoor recreation facilities – Kelowna News

City wants your input

Kelowna residents are being encouraged to give their input on the city’s indoor recreation facilities strategy through a postcard survey that will be mailed to households in the coming days.

Work is underway to create a plan to help guide the city’s investment in sport and recreation facilities over the next 10 to 20 years.

“As Kelowna grows, we recognize that the need for recreation opportunities, organized sports and social connection is growing too,” said Doug Nicholas, sport and event services manager.

“Planning at this long-term, holistic level is vital to ensure resources are appropriately allocated and prioritized as we support the recreation and sport needs of our community.”

The city says understanding resident preferences in relation to indoor recreation facilities is a key aspect to the strategy, in alignment with capital priorities identified through infrastructure planning that prioritizes investments like the replacement of the Parkinson Recreation Centre or improvements to the Capital News Centre.

Every household in the city will receive a coded postcard via Canada Post. The code is required to access the survey, can only be completed once per household, and must be completed by April 22.

A parallel group survey will be available for sport and recreation partners to determine key amenity priorities and space planning needs. Provisions are also being made for those who may not have a fixed address or may be in the process of moving.

If you have not received your code via mail by April 10, you can contact [email protected] to request alternate access to the survey.
