What is the purpose of the Master Plan?
The purpose of this project is to develop a regional parks, recreation, and culture master plan
for the Towns of Olds, Didsbury, Carstairs and Sundre, Village of Cremona, and Mountain
View County (known as the Municipal Partners). This plan will provide guidance to the
Municipal Partners in making decisions that best meet the needs of their residents. Facilities
and programming related to parks, recreation and culture will be the main focus of the plan.
When will the Master Plan be complete?
The project is scheduled to be completed in November, 2021. The Municipal partners have
engaged Expedition Management Consulting to complete the project. Expedition is an
expert parks, recreation, and culture planning firm. The full project timeline is described
in the graphic below.
How can residents give input?
There are several opportunities to provide your input toward the master plan. All residents in the Mountain View region are encouraged to participate.
Survey participants will have an opportunity to enter into an early-bird draw (if you complete a survey by March 31st) and the final draw (if you complete a survey by April 30th). Each draw will be for a $100 local gift card of your choosing!
To request a hard copy, contact your municipal representative.
