Have Your Say and Make a Splash – City of Greater Sudbury Begins Aquatic Service and Facility Review

Aug 16, 2023

Aquatic programming and services improve the quality of life for residents and contribute to a healthier community. To guide and manage the City’s short- and long-term investment in aquatic services, an Aquatic Service and Facility Review is being conducted.

Community engagement is a vital part of this project as it will help us better understand residents’ satisfaction with current aquatic services in Greater Sudbury, including barriers to participation, gaps and priorities.

As part of the first phase of public engagement, the City and Monteith Brown Planning Consultants will be hosting the following events to offer residents the opportunity to learn more about the project and provide input: 

•    Wednesday, August 23  
o    Anderson Farm Museum - Rock the Farm Concert Event (550 Regional Rd. 24, Lively) - 5:30 to 8 p.m.
