Port Moody city council voted unanimously Tuesday to ask the public what to do about Inlet Park.

A redevelopment plan for the Murray Street recreation area was first accepted by city council from community services staff on Feb. 8 but councillors said at the time that even the lowest cost option of the six proposed in the plan was too expensive for the city’s five-year financial plan. The options range in building costs from $3.7 million to $7.17 million and include amenities such as a new field house, soccer fields, a softball diamond and parking stalls.

Also to be discussed in the public consultation will be how to best fund the park’s operations if and when it is upgraded, including options such as soliciting private contributions or allowing corporate sponsorship.

No date has been set for the public input process and it is not clear whether it would take the form of a public meeting, a series of workshops or a written questionnaire.
