ACTIVE LIVING CENTRE FEASIBILITY STUDY

ACTIVE LIVING CENTRE FEASIBILITY STUDY

The 2018 Recreation Master Plan was developed to serve as a guide for the strategic direction of recreation for the Greater Vernon area. The Master Plan indicated the need for facility development and specifically the need for the following facilities as the highest priority:

  • Aquatic Centre (a NEW pool to increase aquatic use capacity, upgrade existing pool features)
  • Gymnasium(s)
  • Dedicated Program Spaces
  • Fitness Space
  • Indoor Walking / Running Track

This Feasibility Study will provide clear direction for Greater Vernon to implement the recommendations and move forward to referendum. The Feasibility Study will assess the level of community support for:

  • The development and location of a new Active Living Centre
  • Upgrades to the Vernon Aquatic Centre
  • Funding options (i.e. taxes, user fees, etc.)

We want to hear from you to assess the specific size, amenities and tax dollars to allocate, if the facilities are to be built.

The public’s involvement and feedback to the Active Living Centre Feasibility Study is vital. Recreation ambassadors will be attending different community events and will be hosting interactive opportunities for the public to provide input on the type and size of new recreation facilities required in Greater Vernon to meet needs now and into the future.
