An update on the new arena project in Wynyard.
The town is currently looking at bids, as well as finding a contractor.
“We’re looking at anywhere from a year to a year and a half to completely build the facility” says Director of Leisure Services Sigourney Hoytfox.
“So right now we’re either looking at starting in the fall and working through the winter, or starting in the spring and working through the summer and the fall.”
Hoytfox says the timeline will depend on when they start the build.
“It depends when we decide to go ahead with the project, so when we decide on a contractor” Hoytfox explains.
“It also depends on cost, so it might be more expensive to actually work through the winter, whereas it might cost less if you wait until the spring.”
Hoytfox says the project is in the final stages, which is nice.
