Blackfalds residents asked for input on arena expansion

The Town of Blackfalds is asking residents for feedback on the arena expansion project.

Following an open house on Wednesday regarding the Multi-Plex arena expansion, the town released concept renderings of the future project.

Residents are asked to complete a survey: www.blackfalds.com/tourism-recreation/multi-plex-ice-arena.

The website also features a gallery of renderings of the new ice surface and the second phase of the project, which is a new home for the library. The expansion will also feature community spaces, combining arts with recreational programming.

Construction costs have already been built into the town’s long-range capital plan. The arena expansion will cost about $15 million and is on track to be built in 2021. The library, which is estimated to cost $4 million, is projected to be built in 2024.

The town will look for sponsorships, naming rights and other groups who may want to help.
