Multi-Plex Arena Expansion
The 2015 Recreation, Culture, and Parks Needs Assessment and Master Plan identified the need for an additional ice surface.
» Many similar sized communities have a twin arena. » An additional ice sheet would address capacity and demand issues.
The 2018 Civic Facilities Development Strategy and Master Plan recommended:
» Planning for an expansion to the Multiplex to include additional indoor ice. » Development of a larger library to support a larger and growing community.
In the development of this facility concept there have been meetings with the Recreation, Culture, and Parks Board; the Library Board; and the Dual Ice Development Society (DIDS). Facility tours in Red Deer, Calgary, and Okotoks were conducted with the architect (ACI Architects), Town Council, and Town Administration.
The Town’s 10 Year Capital Plan includes construction for the ice sheet to start in 2021 and the library in 2024.The Town is proposing to expand the MultiPlex arena. The project is proposed as two phases, with the rink being done in 2021 ($15 million budgeted), and the library in 2024 ($4 million budgeted).
