Master Plan

History

The Municipality of Brockton initiated the Recreation and Leisure Services Master Plan in June 2010. The need for a Master Plan was identified through the Fun, Fit Brockton 2009, update to the 1990 Town of Walkerton Five Year Recreation Development Plan and the initiation of the Brockton Municipal Complex Study in 2010. These three documents, along with the amalgamation of Walkerton with the Townships of Brant and Greenock, provided the initiative to consider this Master Plan.

Focus

The focus of the 2011 Master Plan is on establishing a framework for decision making, investments and staffing for all recreation and leisure service components from 2011 through 2031.

The Plan is intended to establish specific action plans for:

  • parks, trails, horticulture and open space
  • recreation facilities and services delivery
  • the existing municipal campground (Lobies Park)
  • finance, management and staffing

The Plan gives staff tools to meet objectives and adjust them accordingly based on changing demographics, trends, and resource availability.
