Sta­dium de­tails down to the wire

The Compass - - NEWS -

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.
