Building Markham's Future Together:
Parks, Recreation, Culture, and Library Master Plan & Public Safety
We can enrich community life and create more "liveable" communities when we invest in health, wellness, and lifelong learning programs. In Markham, this includes:
- Enhancing our community parks, recreation, culture and library programs and service delivery systems
- Making community safety a priority in developing programs, policies and facilities
Here's our plan:
Update and create an Integrated Leisure Master Plan.
The Master Plan is a 10-year strategy that guides Markham’s decision-making and resource allocation strategies with regard to parks, recreation, culture and library service and facility needs. The Plan is based heavily on consultation with the public and stakeholders, as well as an understanding of local demand factors and future trends.
Markham Council has approved the Integrated Leisure Master Plan on April 13, 2010.
If you have any questions or comments regarding the Integrated Leisure Master Plan, please contact Catherine Biss, Project Manager, City of Markham, at 905-513-7977 extension 5999 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Create Markham’s first Community Safety Plan.
We need to develop a comprehensive strategic plan that will provide sustainable solutions to enhance community safety in Markham. A Community Safety Plan benefits from strong linkages with social service and enforcement agencies, urban growth, built form, transportation, and parks, recreation, culture, and library programs and facilities.
- Engage the public in defining “community safety” in Markham
- Strengthen neighbourhoods and invest in children, youth, and families
- Build community partnerships, including the role of enforcement and policing
- Design and retrofit facilities with community safety in mind
- Maximize the synergies with other Council Priorities by sequencing this project to benefit from work underway in the areas of urban growth, transportation, and the leisure master plan.
