Recreation and Culture is embarking on a new Master Planning process. Master planning exercises and regular updates on the status of facilities and associated infrastructure, programming and services needs to support the City of Lethbridge as it grows and expands. The work conducted helps the City stay current and on top of the condition of physical assets, assess facilities' suitability for current and future programming needs, as well as helps the city understand the community's changing needs and desires related to recreational and culture time.

We are currently working with a consultant who will guide our work and provide us with the following outcomes:

  • A brief review of the outcomes and recommendations from the two previous master plans
  • A review and assessment of current recreation and culture facilities, structural and programming areas to assess functionality, ongoing viability and options for facility redevelopment
  • Develop and/or provide best practices associated with investing in the existing and new infrastructure
  • Outline common expectations for recreation and culture within the city through engagement and consultation, including gathering data and information from groups and organizations providing recreation and leisure programs and services to residents
  • Expand on and further develop the 2013 Master Plan "Planning Triggers". Describe and define current service levels
  • Describe current demographic profiles, services, programs and infrastructure and develop future state(s) options for each including a timeline and strategy to address city growth and expansion
  • Research and inform future policy development work done by Recreation & Culture and Council
  • Research and identify program gaps and strategies to address based on the City of Lethbridge service delivery model
  • Provide recommendations and strategies that will help optimize and focus service delivery.

We are looking for your input during this process. Stay tuned to this page for opportunities to provide feedback, take surveys and much more!
