McAdam and Rotary Park Master Plan Consultation and Other City of Duncan Engagement Opportunities
DUNCAN – The City of Duncan is continuing the process of developing a draft McAdam and Rotary Park Master Plan. This past spring, we asked for your input and we heard many valuable ideas about park safety, accessibility, additional recreational amenities, natural areas restoration, and more. Now we are developing these initial ideas into draft directions for the Master Plan.
Last week the City held two drop-in sessions at McAdam Park and at the Fish Hatchery. We encourage those who have not yet provided their ideas to do so through our survey (www.placespeak.com), which can be accessed online and in paper copy at City Hall. We are hoping to have this phase of feedback from the public completed by December 17th, so please let us know your thoughts.
“City staff are excited to be undertaking this level of consultation with neighbourhoods. If you have an interest in any of the projects the City is undertaking, please visit the City website for more details or call staff,” explains Mayor Staples. “It is important to remember to be respectful with staff when providing your input as they strive to receive feedback from all points of view. We want to ensure we hear from all interested parties.”
“We have received many ideas both big and small, and we would like your help identifying the best ones to be prioritized for the Master Plan. Please note that ideas and locations of the potential amenities that have been presented so far are conceptual only, the goal is to determine if there is general support for them,” said Peter de Verteuil, Chief Administrative Officer.
Additional input opportunities will be held over the next few months, prior to Council’s consideration of a draft Master Plan.
