Public Input Wanted For New Multi Use Rec. Facility
• Meeting tonight
Plans and ideas for a new multi use indoor recreational facility proposed for Provost are being invited at a public meeting Wednesday night, December 14. Chief administrative officer of the Town of Provost, Terry Hurlbut says that he is hoping that 15 local people will head up a committee.
Hurlbut told The Provost News that the community is expected to raise $1 million and the balance would come from both the Town of Provost and Provost M.D. No. 52.
He says that the cost of such a facility might be in the $4 million to $5 million range. Hurlbut suggested that donations may be solicited from some companies and businesses operating in the area and also hinted that even the name of the building would be for sale. Other suggestions will be sought from the public. Hurlbut is under the impression that the M.D. will put in up to $2 million as will the Town of Provost.
Town councillor Dwayne Chopek is to chair the meeting.
Hurlbut points out that most of the recreation facilities in the community are good except for the aging arena and swimming pool.
