4. If you support this project, where do you believe the construction funds should come from?

  • The response suggests support for a mixture of funding sources; with a greater percentage of funds coming from Provincial Grants, and a lesser percentage from Tax Revenue and Local Fundraising.

5. Are there other types of recreation you would like to see in the proposed Sports Park?

  • Tennis was the sport with most ‘votes’
  • Badminton was in second place
  • Outdoor Fitness (recently installed!), Bocci Ball, and Basketball were each given three mentions
  • Fifteen other ideas were brought up once or twice in the responses

6. Other Comments – These were categorized into four “types”

  1. Positive: strong support for the idea and for encouraging an active lifestyle
  2. Negative: other needs within the community are more important and do not raise taxes for the project
  3. Neutral: questions about the location and its proximity to the ball diamond and pathways
  4. Off-Topic: other concerns were mentioned that are not related to the Sports Park, and Council reviewed these as well

SUMMARY:

As the survey indicated support for this project, Council will move ahead with next steps. These include:

  • Concept Design (what and how to incorporate various sports options into the facility)
  • Cost Estimates (after the design is created)
  • Funding Sources (based on cost estimates)
