West Recreation Restructuring Notice

On August 29th, 2012, final signatory ratification was given to a new structure of west-end recreation funding and governance by the Councils of the M.D. of Provost No. 52 and the Villages of Amisk, Czar and Hughenden. This new arrangement will replace the former MCHA recreation board, which has for many years provided exemplary service in distributing recreation monies contributed by the aforementioned municipalities.

In recognition of the increasing demands being placed on the funding partners, in terms of both escalating dollar amounts and a slate of aging (and increasingly costly) recreational infrastructure requiring an increased emphasis on long-term planning, a decision was made by all participating municipalities to transition the existing model into a direct-delivery board consisting entirely of elected officials from the Councils of participating municipalities.

A copy of the new recreation agreement may be found here

It is important to note that the process for potential applicants will not materially change, and in the coming weeks solicitations will be sent to all previous recipients of MCHA monies advising them of the specifics of the new structure as it relates to their potential applications for recreational funding.

In the interim, should there be any questions relative to the new west recreation agreement, please don’t hesitate to contact either myself or your Divisional Councillor.
