Northcrest Ward Town Hall Meeting

Event date: Wednesday, September 28, 2016, from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Sports Development and Recreation: Northcrest Ward Town Hall Meeting, Sept. 28

Northcrest Ward Councillors Dave Haacke and Andrew Beamer are holding a Town Hall meeting for residents to discuss sports development and recreation in the community, from 7-9pm on Wednesday, September 28 at Edmison Heights Public School, 1111 Royal Dr.

The north end of the City hosts an impressive array of parks and recreation facilities. The City is planning a new twin-pad arena in the north end near Trent University to replace Northcrest Arena; it recently opened a baseball diamond and soccer field with the support of Trent University and the Blue Jays Care Foundation; it created a new cricket pitch at Milroy Park; it is in preliminary stages of planning the conversion of a wading pool into a splash pad at Barnado Park; and it continues to maintain an extensive trail and park system through the City’s north end.

“Recreation and sports facilities are essential to support the quality of life that the residents of our community rightly expect,” Haacke said. “As the north end grows with new homes, neighbourhoods and subdivisions, the City is keeping pace with these services for individuals and families.”

“The replacement of Northcrest Arena is an exciting project for our entire City,” Beamer said. “I am looking forward to hearing from residents about this development as well as about other parks and recreation opportunities. When families are looking for a new home, when employers are considering whether to invest in a community, these types of facilities can make a difference.”

Community Services Director Ken Doherty, whose department includes arenas, parks and recreation in the City of Peterborough, will deliver a brief presentation and take questions during the meeting.
