‘Fun cen­tre’ closer to be­com­ing a re­al­ity

The Glengarry News - - Garrynews -

A vir­tual re­al­ity gam­ing “fam­ily fun cen­tre” in Alexan­dria is one step closer to be­com­ing a re­al­ity.

North Glen­garry coun­cil has adopted a zon­ing by-law amend­ment clear­ing the way for Ginette and Luc Prud’homme to open the Knight’s VR Vir­tual Re­al­ity Gam­ing busi­ness in a 3,200-square-foot build­ing at 68 Lochiel St., the for­mer lo­ca­tion of a Pen­te­costal church. The by-law change will go into ef­fect if no­body ob­jects by 4 p.m. De­cem­ber 24. In ad­di­tion to chang­ing the zon­ing la­bel from “in­sti­tu­tional” to “gen­eral com­mer­cial,” the amend­ment would re­duce the num­ber of park­ing spa­ces re­quired from 17 to four.

The fun cen­tre, which would be lo­cated on the ground floor, will in­clude a vir­tual re­al­ity gam­ing sta­tion, a video ar­cade, pool ta­ble and snack bar. The sec­ond storey would con­tinue to be a res­i­den­tial rental unit.
