Village of Gold River Embarks on Parks and Trails Master Plan

Village of Gold River

GOLD RIVER - The Village of Gold River has partnered up with Masters Planning students at Vancouver Island University (VIU) to develop a Parks Master Plan which was identified in the Strategic Planning Goals for 2019-2020. Staff and VIU have worked through the summer to engage the community, compile a community profile, and begin to review the gathered data to provide a working, sustainable plan for the Village.

Mayor Unger stated, “our community values its parks and trails, and with the development of the Parks and Trails Master Plan, we will be provided guidance in the form of a long-term plan that is ultimately beneficial for the community”

“Mayor and Council has made it clear through our Strategic Planning exercises that the health and well-being of the community is critical and, through a vibrant parks and trails system, is able to support all residents” stated Brad McRae, Chief Administrative Officer.

The Parks and Trails Master Plan will be completed at the end of 2019, with plans for implementation in the 2020 budgeting cycle.
