The Community Services Division is proposing a Draft R-Zone Policy & Procedure for residents and user groups in the City.

The City of Sarnia is committed to ensuring the safety of service users and staff in its recreational programs, facilities or properties, and fostering an environment where there is Respect for others, and Responsibility for all actions. The R-Zone policy will provide the standards and expectations for recreational-user behavior when engaged in sport and leisure activities within City facilities. The City will exercise no tolerance to any form of violence, vandalism or inappropriate behavior in its programs, facilities or properties.

The City’s programs, facilities and properties are places that promote learning and leisure for residents. All users and staff have the right to be safe and to feel safe while attending a program, facility or property. With this right comes the responsibility to be accountable for actions or behaviors that put at risk the safety of others.

The goal of this document is to promote a positive, safe, enjoyable and supportive environment for all users and staff in City recreational programs and facilities, and to increase the level of understanding and awareness of this policy. This document will foster a more positive relationship among user groups and organizations moving forward.

Until October 28, 2020, the City of Sarnia is looking for community input towards the proposed R-Zone Policy. Please take a moment to review the information available on this page and participate in our accompanying survey.
