Potential Multi-Purpose Facility (Arena):
While we wait to receive official grant approval and settlement from insurance, we are moving forward so we can be ready when we (hopefully) get the green light. We appreciate everyone's patience! We recently posted a tender for a consultant that will aid the City in preparing and determining the details of the scope of the project. The Executive Committee for the project is currently reviewing the proposals that have been submitted. The successful bidder will work with our project team, Executive Committee, the Advisory Committee, as well as stakeholder and user groups to develop the scope of the project and our list of requirements. It is the scope and requirements we develop in this process over the next few months that will be the basis for the tender that will be put out for companies to bid on the design and construction of the new facility.
Letters have been sent out to our neighbouring communities including the Rural Municipality of Meadow Lake, Flying Dust First Nation, the Meadow Lake Tribal Council, and the Métis Nation of Saskatchewan requesting that they appoint someone to sit on the Advisory Committee to represent their communities, and provide valuable and diversified feedback and advice. The Advisory Committee will also pull from other professional resources as needed such as Building Officials, Certified Community Planners, the Fire Chief, Asset Management Staff and more to help ensure the success of the project.
The Skate Park project is closer to becoming a reality! Contracts have been signed and skate park hardware ordered. The construction team is set to arrive in October to create the asphalt pad for the skate park. Please be watchful of crews working in Lions Park! Recreation Manager Regan Beck is still on the hunt for more donors and sponsors! For more information or to donate or sponsor the project contact Rec Manager, Regan Beck at email@example.com.
Our path construction continues with the subgrade and sub drain prep and installation taking place on both Larocque and 3rd Street E from September 13 through September 21. They will pause in construction in these areas until early October when they are scheduled to return to these sections to install the base and begin paving in mid-October. The work on the Highway #55 section of the trail from 3rd Street E up to Flying Dust is not scheduled to begin until September 21. Another update will be provided at that time.
Please be watchful of crews working in path locations including Lions Park, on Larocque Drive, on the East side of 3rd Street E from Larocque up to 4th Ave, and along the South and East sides of Highway 55 from 3rd St E all the way to Flying Dust's path connection.
Recreation Manager Regan Beck is still on the hunt for more donors and sponsors! For more information or to donate or sponsor the project contact Rec Manager, Regan Beck at firstname.lastname@example.org.
