Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

At the April 19, 2021 meeting, City Council approved the creation of an Outdoor Recreation Working Group to develop and recommend to Council a Sports Field Allocation Policy to support fair, equitable and transparent access to all publicly-owned sports fields.

The Outdoor Recreation Working Group met regularly online in 2021 and have presented a Draft Sports Field Allocation Policy that outlines both policies and procedures to ensure staff have a process to review and allocate sports fields to user groups, and user groups have an understanding and reference for this process so they can enjoy our publicly funded sports fields and baseball diamonds.


Key Policy Points

The purpose of this policy is to provide a framework for community groups and the general public to ensure equitable and transparent access to all publicly owned sports fields, and to consider current and future industry trends that may affect future operations. Below are the key points included within the policy:

  • Allocation and Facility Operations Responsibility
  • Allocation Priorities
  • Seasonal Sports Field Time Requests and Allocation
  • Contract Obligations
  • Cancellation
  • Inclement Weather Procedure
  • Holiday Hours of Operation
  • Payment and Fees
  • Roles and Responsibilities

Please review the document "Report - Draft Sports Field Allocation Policy" for more detailed information.
