The City of Airdrie has announced that they are looking for residents' feedback about the newest regional park in the city's Northeastern quadrant.
"We're now diving into the Master Plan. The Master Plan is a comprehensive, long-term blueprint that outlines the vision, goals and actionable steps for developing the park. It will cover things like land use, trails, amenities, environmental considerations and even budget constraints," The city stated.
On Wednesday, November 29, at Genesis Place, starting a 6 p.m. and running till 8 p.m., The City is inviting residents to an open house for both collaboration and feedback on the Master Plan. No reservations are needed to attend,
According to the City, the Master Plan will be finished by March 2024, by which time they will, 'start laying the groundwork in the last quarter of 2024.'
Last year, the community was asked to engage of what they wanted to see in the newest park as part of a Recreation Needs Assessment.
"Through the Council reviewed your feedback in November 2022 and chose a theme focused on 'organized sports and civic, festival, arts and culture.' This theme will help us balance costs with what the community and user groups really need."
The City stated that the theme accommodates the need for sport amenities and an outdoor gathering space for the community. The development of the park will occur in stages.
"First up will be trails and rest areas. After that, we’ll add more complex features like sports fields and other amenities you've told us are important. Until then, the land will stay off-limits to the public. It will still be farmed and ranched to keep it productive as we sort out the details."
