Current Status: Phase 4 – Project Delivery
Following on the feasibility study and revised plan (approved in April 2018), a schematic design was completed for the proposed facility revitalization. This design was approved by the SRD board of directors in November 2018, moving the SRD into Phase 4: Project Delivery. The immediate focus will be applying for provincial and federal grant funding opportunities, specifically the Canada-British Columbia Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program announced in September 2018.
In January 2019, The SRD made an application to the Canada-British Columbia Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program – Community, Culture and Recreation Stream in an effort to offset costs. A building reserve fund was established in 2016 to help pay for the costs of renewal however additional sources of funding are required. This is a rare opportunity to obtain external funding for recreation infrastructure and should the grant application be successful, construction could begin in late 2020.
