This policy supports inclusiveness in recreation, contributes to building a sense of community and reflects the integrated approach between recreation, health, and community services via the following four policy directives that provide:
1. Tax support for introductory and basic skill development programs focusing on children, youth, families and low income Calgarians;
2. Recreation programming in publicly operated facilities and open spaces through direct delivery;
3. Leadership in the co-ordinated and co-operative planning and delivery of recreation programming through collaboration and partnerships; and
4. Support to build community capacity and enable community-driven recreation program delivery.
The policy aims to provide sound management direction for the unique biophysical resources of Griffith Woods Natural Environment Park. Management strategies as well as guidelines are specified to accommodate specific recreational activities which will impose minimal environmental damage to the forest so that the area will be protected and managed to ensure it continues to fulfill its ecological functions.
This Plan contains an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Policy that commits to minimizing the use of pesticides in the City of Calgary and maintaining a pesticide-free buffer zone in and around playgrounds and public outdoor pools.
