Culture and Tourism strategies kicked-off

After an eventful week of committee meetings, several projects are making headway.

As previously announced, City Council voted last month to expand the Recreation Master Plan to include tourism and culture components. It is now the Culture, Tourism and Recreation Master Plan. To kick-off the tourism and culture strategies, the newly formed Tourism and Culture Committees each had their first meeting on July 5. The members reviewed their committee’s Terms of Reference, which outlined expectations, responsibilities and procedures for their respective projects.

Both committees will now determine deliverables required of the consultant(s), who will be hired in the fall to develop the Culture, Tourism and Recreation Master Plan. Each committee will consider their area of representation and decide what should be included in that section of the Master Plan. A draft RFP will then be compiled and released in September or October of this year.
