Rec Master Plan For South Bruce Peninsula

South Bruce Peninsula | by John Divinski  

An aquatic centre may be part of a recreation plan if the public supports it.

South Bruce Peninsula council has approved $70,000 for a Recreation and Cultural Master Plan study.

If the support is there, they may be looking at an aquatic centre as part of the plan.

Mayor Janice Jackson says the municipality doesn't really have a big push on arts and culture and council wants to change that.

Jackson says the public will be asked for input on what they think should be part of the master plan.

She says, for instance the recreational plan will include all of the municipality's beaches, trails and recreational facilities and that's where the possibility of an aquatic centre comes into play.

Jackson says the message was loud and clear during the last election campaign that constituents wanted an aquatic centre and the town has already set aside $25,000 for a feasibility study on such a project.

In addition $45,000 has been earmarked for the work on the overall Recreation and Cultural Master Plan.

Both projects are slated for completion this year.

The money is already available in reserves.
