Township of Mulmur and Township of Melancthon
Recreation Plan & Efficiency Review
About the Project
The Townships of Mulmur and Melancthon are embarking on a planning exercise together that will guide municipal investment in recreation in the future. This includes two (2) key projects:
Project 1: A Facility and Program Assessment of the North Dufferin Community Centre (NDCC) (Honeywood Arena) to ensure that the facility is operating as efficiently as possible, while meeting the community’s needs, and
Project 2: A Recreation Master Plan for the Township of Mulmur to determine key opportunities to enhance the existing recreation assets effectively and efficiently.
The Approach to Developing the Plan
Sierra Planning and Management – a multi-disciplinary planning firm, has been retained to lead the NDCC Efficiency Review and develop a Recreation Master Plan for Mulmur. This exercise will be developed through an integrated and comprehensive public consultation process, complemented by a thorough analysis of current and projected community needs, and best practice.
The study will involve consultation with a range of stakeholders (including community and sport groups) as well as the public in identifying current needs, issues and priorities for the NDCC and investment in parks and recreation in general in Mulmur.
The project will employ a range of means to gather public input including public consultation sessions. Keep checking this web page to follow the progress of the project and see how you can provide your input on the Master Plan.
Upcoming events include:
Online Public Survey: Closing February 21, 2020
Community Workshop: February 4, 2020 – 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. – NDCC Upstairs Auditorium
User Group Workshop (by invitation only): Late February / Early March (date TBD)
