A Note From the Manager... The Cowichan Valley Regional District, in September 2010, approved the new Corporate Strategic Plan. Gerry Giles, Chair of the CVRD Board of Directors writes “in moving forward as a region, it is critical that proactive steps are taken to preserve the high quality of life enjoyed by residents. The Corporate Strategic Plan provides a roadmap showing where we are, where we want to go, and how we will get there”. The plan’s vision statement says “the Cowichan Region celebrates diversity and will be the most livable and healthy community in Canada”. The Mission statement states that “we serve the public interest through leadership, cooperation and innovation, with a focus on community priorities and strengths”. Value statements include “Respect (we respect our people, our land and our diversity), Service Excellence (we provide innovative consistent, efficient, world class service as a proactive team of professionals who are committed to efficient communication), Integrity (we are honest and trustworthy), Accountability (we exercise prudence in the use of public funds, and demonstrate personal leadership to produce responsible, transparent results), One Region ( we achieve more through collaboration and cooperation, for our residents, businesses and community partners) and Positive (we promote a happy, healthy, fun, supportive workplace)”. Using the Corporate Strategic Plan as a guide, the Parks, Recreation and Culture Department has created a department work plan which includes plans developed by individual divisions. Cowichan Lake Recreation is committed to working toward promoting individual and community wellness; providing exceptional parks, recreation and cultural services; achieving excellence through community partnerships; having well maintained public facilities; and being part of an efficient, high performance, innovative organization. To this end, we continue to work on upgrading and/or maintaining our facilities (arena parking lot project); offering a variety of programming and special events that you will find in this edition of the Playbook; working with various user groups of our facilities to help them achieve their goals; and partnering with different organizations such as the Great Lake Walk Society, Cowichan Rocks Curling Club and the Cowichan Lake Retreads to bring large economically beneficial events to the Cowichan Lake area. Whether you are a partner, a participant, a user group, an employee or a wonderful volunteer – there is a place for you at Cowichan Lake Recreation. Yours in recreation….. Linda Blatchford Manager, Cowichan Lake Recreation
