The City of Prince George is seeking citizen input on how it delivers aquatic services, as aquatics has been identified in the Community Recreational Services Plan as one of the most popular local indoor recreational activities.
The Four Seasons Pool has been under the microscope now for a number of years as the aging facility is in dire need of upgrading or replacing and some have suggested closing it completely.
The city has launched an online survey and is hosting a public open house next week to learn and collect feedback directly from residents.
The open house and survey will capture input on Aquatics amenities and services and provide opportunities for residents to share ideas for future enhancements. The session will be held at the Prince George Civic Centre on Thursday, May 12, from 7:00pm to 8:30pm. A short presentation on aquatic services will be given followed by a question & answer session.
The City’s 2016-18 Corporate Plan includes a focus on prioritizing service, recreation, and facility infrastructure needs and investments. The Aquatic Needs Assessment will provide a thorough analysis specific to the needs for aquatic recreation services and programming. This assessment, along with public feedback, will assist the City by informing its short and long-term capital and operating decisions.
Residents are encouraged to visit the city’s website to take the online Aquatic Needs Assessment survey. Feedback is requested by June 10, 2016.
