Doris Smith Park - Decision Pending
Throughout 2021, the City of Leduc reduced the number of basketball nets in Doris Smith Park as a temporary measure to address noise concerns. Additional enforcement presence and new park signage was also implemented to raise awareness of the city’s Parkland Bylaw. In February of this year, Parks, Recreation and Culture sought feedback from Windrose residents through a survey as directed by Council. The results of the survey were submitted to Council with the June 20 agenda.
At the City Council meeting on June 20, 2022, Council debated next steps. They passed a motion requesting Administration look into the feasibility of installing a second court in the park and leaving the current court with two nets. Administration has begun initial land surveying to inform the cost estimate. This option is expected to be brough forward to Council during Budget 2023 deliberations this fall. Until all options are explored, the temporary measures will remain in place.
