The City of Thunder Bay has engaged FOTENN Planning + Design and the Boreal Centre in the creation of a renewed vision for Chippewa Park, one of Thunder Bay's most treasured landmarks. As part of this work, a comprehensive consultation effort with local First Nations and urban aboriginal groups, key stakeholders, and members of the public will be undertaken to garner beneficial information from all interested parties. This project will guide municipal investment over the short and medium term and establish updated priorities and programming for the park. Together with your help and understanding, the project outcomes will foster: Improved terrestrial environments; Enhanced cultural recognition of our collective heritage; Usable recreational facilities; and, Vested public interest in the well being of this community space. Building off the foundational work completed in the 2000 Chippewa Park Master Plan, this project will evaluate the park's current programming and infrastructure in order to determine a preferred concept plan for its future use. The project commenced in December 2015 and will continue over the next 6-9 months, with anticipated completion in late summer/fall 2016. WE WANT YOU TO BE INVOLVED! Whether you are discovering the park for the very first time or a regular visitor, we want to hear from you. Our goal for the visioning of Chippewa Park is to engage the community to identify the needs, challenges, opportunities, and to request input on how you would like the future transformation of Chippewa Park to take place. A second Stakeholder Workshop and Public Open House and will also be held at a later stage in the project to present preliminary options for review, based on the feedback from the first stage of public consultations. We also want to let you know that the City is undertaking a Recreation and Facilities Master Plan in parallel to this project to guide investment in recreational services, programs and facilities over the next 12 to 15 years. The consulting firm Sierra Planning + Management has been retained to lead the development of this Master Plan and as part of this process will seek to determine current needs, issues and priorities for recreation and facility investment in Thunder Bay. Your insight and input will be as important to their work. We will continue to work closely with Sierra over the course of the project to align consultation opportunities with stakeholder groups wherever possible to minimize consultation overload and avoid any inconvenience. We look forward to working with you throughout this project.
