Town of Marathon Active Living Centre Feasibility Study

he Town of Marathon’s current recreation complex is due for a capital replacement. As such, the Town of Marathon (the Town), and Consulting Team (True Grit Engineering, FORM Architecture Engineering and MNP LLP) have completed a study to evaluate the prospect of a new Active Living Centre and Recreation Complex (ALC). Quality of life and recreation are core community values of the Town. The development of a new Active Living Centre and Recreation Complex will be a key cog to the Town’s future. The facility itself must be sustainable, people-centric, cost-effective and functionally-efficient. Recreation centres create a stronger sense of community and provide gathering places for families and social groups; as well as individuals of all ages and economic status. The facility will provide residents with a better quality of life, increase property values and attract tourists, while contributing to the overall physical and mental health of the community. The ALC feasibility study consisted of a Best in Class review, three rounds of public consultation activities, site evaluations, architectural works, a preliminary financial plan, recommendations, and proposed next steps. The following report provides a high-level summary of the completed study.

Download the Community Safety & Wellbeing Plan

The Community Safety and Policing Act, 2019, S.O. 2019, c. 1, Sched. 1 Part XVI mandated every municipality across Ontario to prepare and adopt a Community Safety and Well-being Plan by July 2021. The new legislation required a CSWB plan that proactively addresses locally identified priority risks to community safety and well-being. Additional requirements are also outlined in the legislation pertaining to conducting consultations, contents of the plan, and monitoring, evaluating, reporting and publishing the plan.

The province has developed a Framework to guide municipalities in this work, which encourages a deeper understanding of four areas to ensure local plans are efficient and effective in making communities safer and healthier. These include Social Development, Prevention, Risk Intervention and Incident Response.
