2021 Strategic and Business Development Plan

In September 2019, the recreation department enlisted the services of consultants at BerryDunn to help develop a strategic direction for the next three to five years. Staff requested that the resulting plan focus on two core elements: a strategic plan and a business plan, combined into one document. Additionally, staff requested an analysis of the department's organizational structure, recreation services, financial health and indoor facilities. The plan was completed and approved by the Board of Trustees on March 15, 2021 with implementation beginning July 1, 2021.

What's Next?

In March 2021, the RecPlex contracted with RCM Architects to develop a feasibility study focused on the department's fitness wing. This project explored next steps toward meeting some of the suggested objectives outlines in the 2021 Strategic & Business Development Plan.  Additionally, the RecPlex is currently working on the Countryside Park Bass Lake Revitalization and Water Access Project.
