Please note this is just one engagement opportunity for the strategy. There will be additional opportunities throughout the strategy development for community groups, sport associations and Strathcona County residents to be involved.

Purpose of the Committee

The Advisory Committee members will be comprised of  a broad and diverse sounding board of people that will provide strategic advice to the Steering Committee on the development of Recreation, Parks and Culture’s strategy; ensuring that it meets the needs of the County and is realistic and feasible to implement. The Advisory Committee members will take a systems-level view of the Strategy and ensure that the different inputs into it, including literature, trends and best practices, internal expertise, and public and stakeholder input, areas of focus and priorities are robust, given due consideration, and are appropriately balanced to get the best result.

Selected citizens will be joined on the committee by a member from Family and Community Services, Economic Development and Tourism and other outside agencies.

This 12-year strategy will replace the County’s existing  Open Space and Recreation Facility Strategy (OSFRS).
