Public input is encouraged

Saturday, January 26, 2019 ~ SOOKE

The District of Sooke is gearing up to review to two key master plans that will impact the development and tempo of the community infrastructure.

The municipality that boasts a growing population now over 13,000 will be accepting public input as part of updating the Parks and Trails Master Plan and the Transportation Master Plan.

“These plans require significant consultation with the public, business community, service organizations, and educational institutions in order to develop a co-creative process that reflects the needs of our community,” it was stated in a release from Interim Chief Administrative Officer Don Schaffer on January 25.

The first open house is coming up Wednesday, January 30 at Edward Milne Community School, 5 to 9 pm. This session will have two individual workshops, one for each master plan.

Then on Sunday February 3 a drop-in open house will be held from 2 to 6 pm at SEAPARC Leisure Complex.

Together, the two plans are intended to work together “to shape the future of outdoor recreation and transportation within the District of Sooke”, says the District of Sooke.

An online survey is available.
