June 2020 Update

Planned improvements to Parc Verdun will be funded through a provincial Gas Tax grant, and are still in the 2020 budget. However, in order to alleviate financial strain during the pandemic, implementation may be postponed until the summer of 2021.

Background

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Council adopted a revised 2020 budget on April 27. Read more about that process here. Priorities have been realigned to the following:

  • Essential services are fully supported
  • Funding for COVID-19 response-related services and social supports is provided
  • Capital construction projects that would be very expensive to stop are continued
  • Revenue-generating activities that are safe to carry on are continued
  • Expenditures that can be postponed are eliminated from the 2020 budget

Stay tuned for further updates as we progress.

Park Verdun has been identified as being a popular neighbourhood park in need of improvements. In June 2019, District staff conducted an online survey in addition to three park information sessions to determine the interests and priorities of the community with regards to improving Parc Verdun.

We received 159 surveys submitted between June 6 and July 5, 2019. We learned that there is a desire to improve the stream bank and trails and keep both tennis courts and the multi-use courts. We heard interest in restoring the area where the practice wall is located as well as some interest in keeping the practice wall.
