Study Update (November 2014)
The Arena Management Study was initiated
in September 2014. Their progress
to date includes the following:
The consultants have completed their review of related staff reports, engineering assessments, utilization data, demographic data, and prior public and group input. An arena tour and workshops with City staff have also been completed.
· On November 12 and 13, 2014, the consultants held focus group sessions with local ice and indoor turf user groups to learn more about their needs and to work collaboratively to identify options for addressing facility challenges.
· The first of a series of three public meetings will be held on Wednesday December 3, 2014 at the Kinsmen Centre (656 Lakeshore Road) – a drop-in Open House will begin at 6:30pm with a presentation at 7pm and discussion period to follow. The purpose of this initial public meeting is to present a Summary Report of the Facility Needs Assessment, including preliminary findings, activity trends, demographic profile, utilization profile, a statement of facility provision requirements, and the results of the stakeholder focus groups. To allow for public review, presentation material will be posted on this website approximately one week prior to the meeting.
· Please note that two additional public meeting will be scheduled in early 2015. Check this page regularly for updates to the meeting schedule and reports. Any questions or comments may be sent to [email protected]
