Recreation and Culture Strategy
Building Community: A strategy for recreation, parks and culture services in Strathcona County
Implementing the Recreation and Culture Strategy
The new Recreation and Culture Strategy focuses on five key areas: community needs, inclusion, building capacity, environmental stewardship and fiscal responsibility. These areas of focus serve to inform the priorities in the draft implementation plan. The detailed 12-year implementation plan has been developed with short, medium and long-term priorities, including public investment recommendations.
The Recreation and Culture Strategy was approved by Council on October 8, 2019.
