In advance of tomorrow night’s Council meeting, one committee will be recommending a change to the proposed Northside rec centre.
The Sustainable Development Committee will meet before Council to recommend the Northside Multi-Use Facility Phase 2, which is the recreation centre, be halted. Phase 1 is the proposed twin arenas.
The designs incorporated elements from phase 2 like parking and front door design.
As the facility was designed in two phases proceeding one shortly after the other, uncertainty about the timing or approval of Phase 2 is delaying Phase 1 construction.
The committee says this has significant financial and operational ramifications and due to the current economic situation and uncertainty, it would be prudent to cancel Phase 2.
The committee meets at 3:30 tomorrow afternoon.
