I like linking to new aquatic centre studies* from other communities, so here's yet another one from Yellowknife...
New construction is recommended rather than renovating the existing aquatic centre. Undertaking a renovation would necessitate working with the constraints inherent in the existing facility. A new construction does mean a blank slate which can help ensure the facility is developed exactly as desired to meet community needs.
*studies re: new aquatic centres, not new studies re: aquatic centres
So where are they getting the funding from again? Shouldn't they be working on that before they do any pool work?
Folks in Yellowknife are flush with cash.
back to square one. pool five years away.
at least this council has come to realize they are inept.
Biggest problem I see with this council and previous ones is they are so pro small sigs they sacrifice the greater good of the people ... sometimes the needs of the many out weigh the needs of the few.
They were elected to make tough choices and not buckle under to the first SIG that speaks out against the most logical choice.
