Public Engagement - January 5, 2022

The Town approved a Recreation & Leisure Master Plan in 2021. The Master Plan states our philosophy and is a guide to ensure that Bassano meets the needs of all of a diverse community. That we top all of the healthy living lists and are looked at as an example of “excellence” in recreation and leisure. That recreation and leisure is seen as an essential department in the community and that we have an orientation to the future.

To deliver on this mission, a thorough analysis of recreation facilities must be completed to assess affordability, overall usage, and facility/program viability. In 2022, directed by council, a business case will be completed for the Thrive Fitness Centre. The facility is currently subsidized through taxation with a deficit (loss) of over $10,000 per annum. Membership is low and this may be attributed to various factors such as, facility size and location, equipment, cost, or demand.

With your input, council will determine if the facility should remain status quo, be relocated to a larger building, transitioned to a private entity, or closed. Help us understand your view on the matter by completing this survey and returning it to the Town Office by January 20, 2022 at 12:00 p.m.

Please complete only one survey per person. Surveys are available in print or online (www.bassano.ca or facebook.com/townofbassano).

This is a starting point – no decisions have been made – it is anticipated that council will make a decision in May regarding next steps.

Time to complete: 10 minutes (11 questions).
