The Town of New Tecumseth is updating it’s Parks, Recreation and Culture (PRC) Master Plan.

A Draft Consultation PRC Master Plan was presented for Council’s consideration at their Committee of the Whole meeting on November 13th, 2017 and ratified at their Council meeting dated November 27, 2017.

Members of Council, stakeholders and the general public were asked to review the draft PRC Master Plan between November 28 and December 15, 2017 and provide further written comment.

This review period for the draft PRC Master Plan is now complete and all feedback received up to and including December 22, 2017 has been documented and will be considered by Colliers.

All comments will be considered by Colliers Project Leaders and the Technical Advisory Committee.

The finalized amended plan will be presented to Council at a Committee of the Whole Meeting scheduled for Monday, January 15th, 2017 at 7:00 p.m.

All comments and input received throughout this process is sincerely appreciated.


The PRC Master Plan will align the department’s activities with the Town’s Strategic Plan, as well as other plans and guiding documents, and will:

  • Provide short-term and medium/long term recommendations to assist in setting priorities for service delivery;
  • Be based on input from the community received through interviews and focus groups with stakeholders, public survey information, discussions with staff, interviews with Council, Committees and Task Forces, and feedback from the public at an Open House;
  • Provide recommendations for actions needed to fill parks, recreation and culture gaps and assist in managing future growth.

In its alignment with the Strategic Plan, the PRC Master Plan will respect the identity of 3 distinct communities in New Tecumseth, while considering priorities and future planning for the entire community.
