🥏⛳️ Development of Disc Golf Plan

  • Memorandum: from K. Bradley, Manager of Parks Planning

  • Staff recommends that the City should not continue to undertake stand-alone studies on an individual sport-by-sport basis, but should consider advancing a Parks Strategic Plan that will provide community-driven, sustainable and city-wide direction for all aspects of the City's investment, service delivery and strategic initiatives guiding the future planning, design, acquisition, improvement, management, operations, programming and use of city parks, natural heritage lands, and open spaces

  • Staff recommends that the Parks Strategic Plan update should be advanced to 2025, instead of 2029, as the 2010 Plan is out-of-date
