There are big changes happening in the Moodyville neighbourhood! As a part of these changes, City Council has approved the creation of a Master Park Plan that will guide the future enhancement of Moodyville Park.
What is a Master Park Plan?
The Moodyville Park Master Plan will provide a framework for guiding the future expansion, enhancement and management decisions for the park. Rather than creating specific and detailed designs, the plan will focus on the context of the park within the City and the immediate community, including ideas for park expansion, activity programming, park facilities, and enhancement of natural areas. As well, the plan will examine how the park will contribute to the City’s overall greenway system connectivity.
The City is soliciting feedback from the public in various ways:
Moodyville Park Master Plan Task Force:
Council has appointed a seven-member community task force that will meet once a month. Their mandate is to assist City Staff with creating a new vision for Moodyville Park that supports the parks and outdoor recreational needs of the Lower Lonsdale and Moodyville community. See more about the Task Force here.
Community Stakeholder Workshops:
City Staff will organize Stakeholder Workshops that will involve various members from the community. The stakeholder group’s role is to listen to and understand feedback received from the Task Force and at the Open Houses. Some stakeholders may have specific perspectives that can provide information for the plan, while others may have a more general viewpoint to contribute to the park plan. They will participate in a hands-on, collaborative workshop to further explore aspirations and program options.
Public Open Houses
Open House #2: March 8, 2017
Open House #1: November 9, 2016
The Task Force is an ongoing committee, meeting on the third Thursday of every month until the plan is approved by Council. The first Community Stakeholder Workshop was held on October 6th, 2016 and the first Public Open House will be held in November 2016. Please see Project Timeline for details.
It is anticipated that the Moodyville Park Master Park Plan process will be completed in the spring of 2017, with implementation of resulting park improvements in 2017 and 2018, pending budget approval by City Council.
