Engage with Us! Parksville Aquatic and Recreation Centre
August 4, 2021
On behalf of the City of Parksville, a team of public engagement specialists from HDR Corporation will lead public consultation events over the next few months to discuss the proposed Parksville Aquatic and Recreation Centre or multiplex. Consultation will help gauge the community’s interest in a new facility, identify potential programs and amenities and help determine a suitable site for the multiplex.
HDR’s consultation approach will now prioritize which features and amenities the community would like to see at an ideal site. The Despard Avenue location is no longer an option for the multiplex. HDR has engagement opportunities planned for residents this summer and fall. We hope you will engage with us.
Popup Engagement - Wednesday, August 18
HDR team members will hand out informational postcards at various locations in Parksville, listening to comments and suggestions from residents about the proposed multiplex. Nothing formal, just an opportunity to share your thoughts on the project with HDR.
- The HDR team will be at the Thrifty’s shopping centre from 11 am to 2 pm.
- From 5 to 8 pm, you will find them in the Parksville Community Park, on the waterfront walkway and at the gazebo.
Other engagement opportunities will include a hybrid in-person and virtual public presentation and listening session in late August, youth engagement in early October, and in-person public workshops in late October.
HDR will also be distributing newsletters with project updates, upcoming events, responses to frequently asked questions, and more. To sign up, send an email to HDR@parksville.ca. You may also submit your comments, thoughts, or ideas about the Parksville multiplex to HDR@parksville.ca. Please note that comments received by HDR will be shared with the City of Parksville to assist with decision making and will form part of the public record.
