Departure Bay residents get a say in recreation

Departure Bay residents will get three chances to share their views on recreation services later this month.

The city’s parks, recreation and culture department will host three focus group meetings as a followup to a recreation services survey that was distributed through February and March.

Meetings are scheduled for 1-3 p.m. April 17 and 6-8 p.m. April 19 at the Kin Hut, and  10 a.m. to 12 p.m. April 21 at the Departure Bay Activity Centre.

Anyone interested is asked to please RSVP to one of the events by calling 250-756-5200 and requesting a complimentary registration. While preregistration is not mandatory, it is appreciated.

Online registration is also available at www.ireg.nanaimo.ca.

The intent of the meetings is to bring together Departure Bay residents and create an avenue for discussion around what recreation services are needed in this area and how the department can support this.

Survey respondents indicated they would like to be more actively involved in the programming of recreation services for the area.
