Fruitvale Rec meeting tonight

BV residents can voice their opinion about the end of the rec agreement with Trail from 6 to 9pm tonight at the Fruitvale Memorial Hall.

Tonight’s the opportunity for Beaver Valley residents to voice their opinion about the end of a recreation agreement with Trail on Jan. 1.

The public meeting is scheduled from 6 to 9 p.m. in the Fruitvale Memorial Hall.

Rather than being an open microphone, town hall style gathering, tonight’s event will be a facilitated, round-table format, where participants will be lead through a discussion process.

Leading up to the community consultation, people living in Montrose, Fruitvale and Area A were asked to fill out a recreation survey intended to to determine the Beaver Valley rec services residents are using, or are interested in; and what they are willing to pay for future services and programs.

The Beaver Valley Recreation, Parks and Trails Committee, comprised of Area A director and chair Ali Grieve, Fruitvale Mayor Patricia Cecchini (alternate director) and Montrose Coun. and regional district director Don Duclos, announced its decision not to renew, renegotiate or extend the recreation services agreement with the City of Trail on Dec. 4.

As a result, all residents of the Beaver Valley were subject to increased rates under the Trail Resident Program (TRP) for facilities covered by the agreement including the Trail Aquatic and Leisure Centre, leisure programming, the Willi Krause Field House and Haley Park.

To date, 2,850 people living in those areas are registered TRP cardholders.
