At the open house May 29

The public came out to inspect the conceptual drawings, which show the initial stages of consultation and design work for the proposed arena at the first public open house Thursday May 29.

This gave people the opportunity to speak with consultants and provide feedback on the design. The proposed facility will have a regulation size ice surface and dry floor space for events, with a seating capacity of 1,600.

Construction will consist of engineered steel with wood elements, located adjacent to the existing Twin Arenas.

The pre-referendum design includes a site plan, a basic floor plan, flow of pedestrian

traffic, parking areas and a depiction of what the building will look like.

If the public votes yes to

the upcoming referendum to borrow $7.5 million for the arena replacement project, there will be further public consultation to allow for community input on the design.

The next public open house takes place in the arena 2 lobby from 1 – 5 p.m. Saturday June 7.

Voting for the arena replacement project on whether Quesnel citizens are in favour of borrowing up to $7.5 million over 20 years for the construction of a new arena will be held June 14 from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. at Red Bluff school, Parkland community hall, Bouchie Lake elementary school, Barlow Creek elementary school, West Fraser fire hall and Quesnel Legion branch #94.

Advanced voting is at City Hall in the CD Hoy room 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. June 4 and 9.
