Posted on August 14, 2019

The Town of Perth, Township of Drummond/North Elmsley, Township of Lanark Highlands, and Tay Valley Township are developing a joint Recreation Master Plan to guide municipal investment in parks and recreation over the next 10 years. In addition to the individual survey, the Townships are seeking input on the following;

An online user group survey for the project is now open! We want to hear from representatives of sport, recreation and community groups: What are the current participation trends, needs, issues and priorities for your group?

If no one from the user group you represent has received an invitation to participate in the survey, please contact your Municipal Office or email recreation@lanarkhighlands.ca to obtain the link to the survey. Prior to contacting your Municipal Office please verify that no one else representing your group is completing the survey, as only one response per group will be accepted.

We appreciate your involvement in the project - Your input matters!
