Submitted by City of Leduc

Leduc citizens are asked to participate in an online survey to contribute to the city’s first Sport Tourism Master Plan, expected to be completed later this year. All online participants will also be entered into a random draw for one of 10, $10 gift cards to eating establishments within Leduc.

“This plan will assess the sport tourism industry and the opportunities Leduc is well suited to host,” says Jim Jones, manager of Community Development and Culture with the City of Leduc. “It’ll examine any requirements for organizational supports and sport infrastructure to attract and host a multitude of sport tourism events and to ensure they are well organized and enjoyable for all visitors.”

The online survey is comprised of 16 questions and will take roughly 10 minutes to complete. “We want to know about your experience, perspective and interactions with the city, and the opportunities we have to be a great location for future sporting competitions,” says Jones.

The survey is also designed to understand any challenges or barriers preventing the City of Leduc from capitalizing on new and exciting opportunities. It’s available online at http://fluidsurveys.com/s/leducsporttourismsurvey/ and hard copies will be made available at the Leduc Civic Centre (1 Alexandra Park)

and Leduc Recreation Centre (4330 Black Gold Drive). The survey is available until July 18, 2014. For more information, call 780-980-7177.
