Recreation and Culture Program Needs Assessment 2016
What types of recreation, arts and culture programs are important to you? Help the Sylvan Lake Recreation & Culture Department identify opportunities to better serve our residents...
The Town of Sylvan Lake is conducting a survey to help identify opportunities to better serve the community in recreation, arts & culture programming. With the NexSource Centre opening in 2017, community input is valuable in determining programming opportunities.
Culture Master Plan- Community Survey
The Town of Sylvan Lake is developing a Cultural Master Plan that will identify and leverage the rich cultural resources of the community to support planning and economic development, and to increase awareness of these resources for both residents and tourists. Cultural resources include things like arts and heritage organizations, cultural industries, cultural and natural heritage, as well as stories and traditions that make Sylvan Lake unique. The Cultural Master Plan will provide a targeted strategy and implementation plan to capitalize on these assets and improve quality of life in the community.
We want community feedback! What cultural resources are important to you, what are our opportunities and strenghts ?
