Pilot Butte wraps up recreation survey

·1 min read

Pilot Butte residents had until 4 p.m. last Friday to have their say on future recreation plans for the town.

The town’s recreation department, as well as the town’s Parks, Recreation, Arts and Culture Committee recently launched a survey in order to find out what services residents are using and what options they aren’t. The survey is aimed at helping the group develop plans for future growth of recreation facilities and services.

Other survey questions encompassed reviews of recreation facilities in other communities.

The survey was accessible online through the Town of Pilot Butte’s website, or via paper copies of the survey which are available at the recreation office.

The town has also announced it is seeking two members for its recreation and culture committee. Applicants must reside in either Pilot Butte or the RM of Edenwold, be at least 14 years old, and have a passion for recreation, sports, arts or culture. According to an online post, “the committee plays an important role by advising and consulting with town council on recreation programs, facilities and planning, makes recommendations on policies and procedures for service delivery and other assigned duties.”

Letters of interest can be sent to parks and recreation director Brian Chmarney by email at pilotbutte.rec@sasktel.net.
