Mandate, Facilities and Services
PRCS Facilities Strategic PlanFollowing major investment for both the Richmond Olympic Oval and in meeting community needs for parks, it was recognized that there was a need to examine facility and amenity needs across the entire city.
In early 2007, a PRCS Facility Evaluation Framework and Evaluation Toolkit were developed to provide PRCS with a process to enable staff to consistently examine and prioritize potential investment in PRCS facility and amenity projects. Twenty-one projects were identified and prioritized and then were examined to determine location and synergies (how amenities could be grouped for development) and to outline an appropriate phasing of projects. The resulting PRCS Facilities Strategic Plan, which was endorsed by City Council in June 2007, addresses a long-term PRCS strategy for replacing, retrofitting and upgrading existing buildings and for new facility development.
