Downtown Indoor Multi-Purpose Facility Feasibility Study

The Municipality is doing a feasibility study for a downtown indoor multi-purpose facility and is seeking your ideas and input to help guide the process.

What is a feasibility study?

A feasibility study is an assessment or analysis of an idea to see if it is practical and viable. Public support for an idea is a key factor in determining if an idea is feasibility, especially for our Municipality.

Project background

On March 26, 2019 Council approved a motion requesting the Municipality do a feasibility study to change the Shell Place stadium field and bleachers to an all-weather indoor structure and as part of the feasibility study, also explore other options for an alternative multi-purposed facility within the downtown core as part of the downtown revitalization strategic initiative.

What is an indoor multi-purpose facility?

An indoor multi-purpose facility is a versatile venue that can accommodate a variety of indoor activities, cultural experiences, attractions and community events. In many communities, indoor multi-purpose facilities have both primary and secondary spaces that can facilitate a range of different activities, functions and events depending on the needs of residents, stakeholders and the community.

Participate. Attend an engagement session. Take the survey.

The information gathered from you through this survey and at public engagement sessions will be used to help determine if you think the idea of a multi-purpose facility in our downtown is something we should further consider as a community.

Take the survey here.

Keep in mind that we are engaging with you at the beginning of the process so that your ideas can help guide the feasibility study and any recommendations on any next steps. Nothing beyond this current feasibility study is currently approved, planned or funded.

There will be additional engagement opportunities on the idea if required as part of a community-driven process. This must include engagement with Indigenous and rural communities, stakeholders and community groups.
The survey will be open until December 9, 2019.
