Castlegar & District Complex Opens its Doors to Ideas

Well over 100 residents of Areas I, J and the City of Castlegar came together on Monday, May 2 to share their vision for the future of their Community Complex.

The open house was the next step in the Recreation and Culture Master Planning process. The plan identified several priorities for the renewal and enhancement of the Community Complex. Technical challenges will need to be addressed, but the RDCK wants to ensure that the complex suits the values and needs of the public it serves. 
“The Commission is grateful to the residents who attended the open house and let us know what’s important to them,” said Lawrence Chernoff, Chair of the Castlegar and District Recreation Commission. “The Complex is the heart of the community and plays an important role in the health and well-being of our citizens. Information sharing is vital to the facility’s future.”

The Castlegar and District Recreation Commission will gather all community input from the open house as well as from online feedback gathered through the RDCK website.  The Commission will identify short, medium and long-term priorities, make revisions to the plan and give the public another chance to review the revised plan based on the short-term priorities.  Following this second public input process, the Commission will take all available information available and consider funding options which may include a referendum, depending on the size of the project identified.

Feedback will be accepted online until May 19th, 2017.
