SOUTH HURON COUNCIL APPROVES COMMITTEE OF THE WHOLE REC RECOMMENDATIONS 5/18/2017 9:08:27 AM
South Huron Council officially accepted the recommendation from the Committee of the Whole in terms of recreation upgrades. The recommendation called on Cao Dan Best to obtain conceptual drawings for a new recreation centre/community hub with a single ice pad, with the option to add a second pad. The recommendation also has the Cao obtaining conceptual drawings for upgrades to the Exeter pool including moving change rooms to the south side and becoming more accessible. Cao Dan Best explains the next steps starting with getting a designer to create conceptual drawings.
The Cao wants everyone to know what will be presented is a strawman proposal which is information gathered from previous community engagement along with surveys. Best says the deadline of July 2021 for the grand opening is obtainable if the municipality can fine tune timelines, get appropriate sessions in place for feedback and get project committees running. He adds the completion of the project will be a combined effort of council, staff and the community.
