There are several proposals on the table that have been requested as part of New Tecumseth’s 2023 budget that includes upgrades to parks and recreation facilities.

These projects were suggested by the Town’s parks, recreation and culture department.

Of the town’s total Net Levy of $42.4 million, $9.2 million is allocated for parks, rec and corporate facilities.

The proposals are subject to final approval by council.

For recreation facilities, the requests include upgrading the basketball nets at the Tottenham Community and Fitness Centre, replacing the sport flooring and modernizing the elevator at Alliston Memorial Arena, and renovating the portable floor covering for the ice pads at the New Tecumseth Recreation Centre. Also requested are upgrades to lighting in the field-house change rooms and renovations in the fitness area.

For parks, the proposals include completing the design for resurfacing the tennis courts in Tottenham, replacing the washrooms at the Tottenham Conservation Area, and doing upgrades at the shelter and event building at PPG Park in Alliston.

This includes developing a new park in the Rizzardo 2 subdivision in Alliston.

Included in the budget are plans to start the construction of Fire Station 4 in Alliston, and the current expansion and renovation of Fire Station 3 in Tottenham which has already been started.

The new town administration centre will continue to be a major project and is slated to be completed in the spring.
