Huron East and Morris-Turnberry have submitted a joint application to the Investing in Canadian Infrastructure Program.

The municipalities are looking to secure a grant to renovate and improve the Brussels, Morris and Grey Community Centre. Some of the intended improvements include new dressing rooms and a new entranceway, a 24/7 fitness centre, expansion of the kitchen and renovations to the current community hall.

The project cost is estimated at nearly $4.8 million, and like other ICIP grants, Huron Eats and Morris-Turnberry would be responsible for covering 26.67 per cent of the project, with the provincial and federal governments covering the rest of the grant, if approved.

It’s likely that municipalities around Ontario won’t know if they’ve secured the grants they’ve applied for under ICIP until spring 2020.
