Help Us Develop the High Prairie and Big Lakes County Recreation Master Plan

What is Recreation Master Plan?

The High Prairie and District Recreation Board has initiated the process of developing a Recreation Master Plan (RMP). The Recreation Master Plan is a joint plan being developed by the Town and County to guide future planning and development of recreation programs, services and facilities for the community. Once completed, the RMP will establish a shared community vision for recreation, and serve as a cooperative framework for Town and the County in making key decisions and strategic investments in the area of recreation to promote health living and welling for residents.


Where will the plan focus?

Geographically, the RMP will focus on the area of shared interest between the Town and the County, with projects located within or around the Town of High Prairie that benefit both Town and County residents. The plan will address important issue such as:

  • current state of recreation and user appraisal;
  • gaps in programs, services and facilities;
  • challenges, opportunities and constraints;
  • future projections and needs; and
  • funding issues and partnerships;

What is the plan process and where are today?
