The Regional District of Central Kootenay said it’s still not too late for the public to give input into the exciting initiative to envision possible recreation facilities at Campbell Field located near Mount Sentinel High School in South Slocan.

Located at the Playmor Junction, adjacent to Mount Sentinel Secondary School and the Slocan Valley Rail Trail, Campbell Field was gifted to the RDCK in 2016 by the South Slocan Sports Association. The open household survey is live and the deadline to take part is November 30th, 2020.

The RDCK is examining the potential for Campbell Field to provide indoor and/or outdoor recreation facilities and amenities. An important component of this examination is gathering information from the public in the form of a survey to help identify possible development ideas.

The open access household survey is the third step in the Campbell Field engagement plan, following the controlled household access survey and group survey.

The South Slocan Sports Association owned Campbell Field since the 1930s when it was acquired from West Kootenay Power, before generously donating the land to the RDCK. It has always provided area residents with a site for sports and cultural activities and thanks to a covenant on the title of the property it will always be used for those purposes.

“This is a great gift that we have been given,” said Walter Popoff, RDCK Area H Director.

”We need to thoughtfully consider the potential recreation opportunities for Campbell Field and when given the opportunity, it is of the utmost importance to hear from residents that may benefit from any new recreation amenities. I encourage people to share their thoughts and ideas.”
