MURF Mainly On Schedule

Construction of the new multi-use recreation facility in Lakeshore is largely on schedule despite the harsh winter.

The ice rinks are expected to open September 1 in time for the minor hockey season.

Steve Salmons with the town says everything else in phase one will follow shortly after. “Sometime in the beginning of October the warm side, the arena, gymnasium will open as well so we’re only a couple weeks behind despite the winter. We couldn’t be happier, in a perfect world it would have all opened on labour day but the rinks and the minor hockey programs will open on schedule, the library and the gymnasium will follow a few weeks after later.”

Salmons expects the tender for phase two of the project for the pool and grounds of the facility to go out some time in August.
