De­sign work com­ing for rec fa­cil­i­ties

The Southern Gazette - - SPORTS -

Burin-Pla­cen­tia West MHA Clyde Jack­man an­nounced gov­ern­ment has come through with fund­ing to carry out more plan­ning work for pro­posed up­grades to the recre­ation in­fra­struc­ture in Marys­town.

The town is looking to build a well­ness cen­tre with a new year­round swim­ming pool, in­clud­ing a walk­ing track and fit­ness area, and is seek­ing to make im­prove­ments to the com­mu­nity’s ice rink.

A pre­vi­ous fea­si­bil­ity study de­ter­mined con­struct­ing a sin­gle build­ing, with both a pool and arena, would be too costly a ven­ture, which re­sulted in the shift in plans.

Mr. Jack­man said “This is $125,000 to get into more of the specifics around the type of de­sign work that needs to be done and such. Hope­fully, this will lead us into the process whereby we make the fa­cil­i­ties a re­al­ity.”
