Representatives from McElhanney have been collecting feedback from the public, Town staff and other major stakeholders from September to November in order to identify needs and priorities related to recreation, cultural services, programs and facilities within the Town of High River.

This information will be used in the development of a long-term Master Recreation, Facility and Programming Plan for High River with 10 and 20 year goals.

Community members were asked to participate in an assortment of information gathering processes such as interviews, surveys and online interactive mapping.
