THUNDER BAY – The Friends of Chippewa Park, a not for profit organization dedicated to improving Chippewa Park will be holding its annual general meeting on Wednesday, June 24 at 7:00 PM at the Chippewa Park Pavilion.

In addition to the usual reports of officers and filling of Board vacancies, this meeting will focus on getting a head start on the development of a new Master Plan for the Park.

“The Board decided that as the City is beginning the process to select a consulting firm to update the 2000 Master Plan, we should use the opportunity of our Annual General Meeting to consult with our members and the public as to what they want to see for the future of the park.  What do they want to keep, what do they want to see enhanced, what do they believe no longer is important to the overall park and what new features would they like to see” said Friends President Lorraine Lortie-Krawczuk.

The City will be advertising for consultants early this summer and it is expected that a final decision will be made on who will develop the Master Plan by midsummer.
