After several years of research and planning, the Municipality of Boissevain-Morton has selected a site for a proposed new arena complex and are forging ahead with planning. The future facility will be located in Boissevain’s east side where the existing outdoor rink is located. The main components being considered as part of the proposed new facility include an ice rink, walking track, and a multi-purpose room.
The announcement comes as part of a larger recreation plan that the Municipality of Boissevain-Morton has been working on with HTFC Planning and Design. In 2019, the municipality was awarded a grant through the “Building Sustainable Communities” program to complete a “Recreation Redevelopment Plan”. The plan included thorough background research and review of existing recreation facilities, as well as consultations with user groups and community groups. Long-term plans for the municipality also include a new swimming pool, campground expansion, outdoor rink, and more baseball fields and soccer pitches.
Head of Council, Judy Swanson says the community’s recreation facilities are extremely old and will not be able to continue operating for long, “Planning for our community’s future is an important priority for us. The funding from the federal and provincial governments are essential to our progress.”
