Albert Stella Memorial Arena January 14, 2015
January 14, 2015 - For Immediate Release – The Municipality of Crowsnest Pass has completed its investigation into the health and safety concerns related to the Albert Stella Memorial Arena (ASMA). As a result, a remediation plan and budget has been prepared that will allow the facility to safely remain open for the next 2 years.
At the Council meeting of January 13, Council approved the proposed remediation plan and contract in the amount of $61,845 plus GST. The remediation work has already commenced and portions of the work will continue into the spring. However, the majority of work will be completed quickly and public use of the facility is expected to resume over the next 2 - 3 weeks. Once this short term solution is implemented, the Municipality will need to actively plan for the future of the facility.
The Municipality thanks the public and user groups for their patience during this short-term closure. For more information please contact Lyle Hannan, Director of Community Services at (403) 562-8833.
Note: It's important to note that the above press release and the actions of council last night only deal with a short term solution (Two years) to the issues within this facility. The full facility evaluation report is posted at the address below, it is a real eye opener.
