Request for Decision Summary
As an extension of support services provided to community sport and recreation agencies through the Recreation Hub, Recreation Services is pleased to present to Council a report and analysis on the status of community sport and recreation organizations.

Proposed Motion
That the report on the status of Community Sport and Recreation organizations be received as information.

Background/Analysis
In an effort to provide Council with a succinct snap-shot on the status of community sport and recreation agencies, Recreation Services has produced a presentation and accompanying report intended to assist Council and Administration in its mid/long-term sport and recreation strategic planning.  
Options/Alternatives
This inaugural presentation and report is intended to provide both Council and Administration with a broad base overview on the status of our community sport and recreation agencies. Recreation would be prepared to provide a similar like report in 2018.  
Consultation/Engagement
A total of thirteen (13) community based sport and recreation organizations were invited to take part in a survey exercise conducted by Recreation Services in early/mid September. Responses were gathered and compiled with the material collected subsequently forming the basis for this evening's presentation. Those agencies invited to take part in the survey included: Aerials Gymnastics Club, Parkland Community Basketball League, Parkland Pirates Aquatic Club, Ravens Volleyball Club, Spruce Grove Barracudas Swim Club, Spruce Grove Minor Ball Association, Spruce Grove Minor Hockey Association, Spruce Grove Minor Soccer Association, Spruce Grove Ringette Association, Tri Area Skating Club, Tri Area Warriors Volleyball Club, Spruce Grove and District Minor Football Association and Parkland Posse Lacrosse Association. Eleven (11) groups subsequently participated in the report. 
Implementation/Communication
The method used to collect information from the various agencies entailed a combination approach involving the use of a survey and fillable program data sheet.
Impacts
To be determined.
