Offer input on how City's ice and sports fields are allocated
November 16, 2017 -
The City of Kingston is reviewing the facility allocation policies that regulate how time at its ice surfaces and sports fields is distributed amongst community groups, teams and residents.
"We know that there is interest in reviewing these policies to ensure they are fair and easy to understand and meet the needs of youth, teams and residents," says Jeremy Hele, supervisor, customer services and administrative services.
Community groups and other facility users are invited to offer their input at an open house at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 23 at the INVISTA Centre in meeting rooms A, B and C. Drafts of the updated policies will be available for review and feedback at the meeting.
Staff may use input to help shape a number of regulations in these policies, including those regarding:
- Inclement weather
- Season start and end dates
- Cancellations and amendments
The Ice Allocation Policy and the Sports Field Allocation Policy were last revised in 2010. See the existing policies at www.CityofKingston.ca/residents/recreation/facilities/bookings.
