The City of Surrey (the “City”) wishes to engage the services of a qualified consulting firm (the “Consultant”) for Parks, Recreation and Culture Fleetwood Study (the “Study”) in the community of Fleetwood to undertake a study to anticipate future recreation and cultural needs in the Fleetwood Plan area. The Study will inform decisions on what amenities are to be planned and paid for within the Fleetwood Plan.

The City anticipates that the Study will:

(a) be the framework for planning amenities that will be required to serve the growing population within the Fleetwood Plan area.
(b) give the PRC Department a foundation of data and best practices for the provision of recreation and culture amenity requirements as the planned densities and land uses are realized in the Fleetwood Plan area.
(c) include a high-level cost estimate for delivering the identified amenities in the Study, which will be used to establish a PRC Community Amenity Contribution within the Fleetwood Plan area.

(a) A review of the existing PRC and private facilities and amenities in Fleetwood including, but not limited to:

(1) Inventory
(2) Condition
(3) Service Levels and Use

(b) Undertake a high-level review/analysis and provide recommendations for PRC provision requirements in Fleetwood:

(1) Research best practices for PRC provision for similar sized municipalities to the City of Surrey.
(2) Undertake a gap analysis of City’s existing provision ratios/targets in comparison to best practices.
(3) Establish a set of recommended facility and amenity provision ratios or other metric based on population, use and users’ demographics, growth/declining uses and activities, and/or through other relevant metrics.

(c) Develop a set of recommendations for the provision of PRC amenities in the Fleetwood Plan area, which include:

(1) A list of facilities/amenities to meet Fleetwood’s future needs as the Plan area develops.
(2) Recommended renovations and expansions of existing civic facilities.
