Stadium details down to the wire
Those anticipating the decision of the location of the new stadium for Harbour Grace shouldn’t have to wait much longer.
Mayor Don Coombs confirms a lot of the groundwork has been completed for determining the location and esthetics of the new building. All that is left is for the Harbour Grace Arena Steering Committee to present their findings to the town council.
“We will be meeting, hopefully Thursday,” he said in a phone interview with The Compass last week.
The recommendations by the committee will still have to be approved by the council , but Coombs believes everything will be determined and ready to go after the meeting.
“I expect we will be announcing the new stadium location then.”
The stadium has been several years in the making, with an official announcement being made during the Herder Championships at the S.W. Moores Stadium in March.
If all runs smoothly, it is expected to break ground in September and be completed in 2015.
