Medicine Hat – Two additional public information sessions have been added to the list of ongoing public engagement opportunities regarding parks and recreation facilities around the city.

On Wednesday, November 24, the City will host an information session at the Veiner Centre from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Numerous city staff from various departments will be on hand the same day from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the auditorium at the Medicine Hat Exhibition and Stampede for a larger public event. This session, open to the general public, will allow for one-on-one conversations to discuss the Parks & Recreation Master Plan, as well as the future of facilities in our city.

“We want to connect residents with the staff behind the planning and decision making process to help explain the direction of this process and how it ties in with the bigger picture, including the Municipal Development Plan and more,” said Scott Richter, Manager of Business and Innovation from Parks & Recreation. “We’re thrilled to continue these conversations in the community and have heard great feedback already.”
