Leisure Centre Options Pitched To Members Of City Council

 
 
LETHBRIDGE - Members of City Council were presented with two options for a new Leisure Centre on Monday.

The first option is a full build complete with an aquatics pool, fitness centre, two gyms, a field house, an indoor playground and a youth centre at a cost of $125-million. Director of Community Services Bary Beck also presented the option that they split the project into phases and start with an aquatic centre and fitness area for $50 million and complete the rest when more funding is available.

Due to the size of the facility and other amenities, the recommended location is attached to the Crossings Ice Complex in west Lethbridge. Beck says "if you want to move this thing along faster, this is the only site we have today. If Council wanted to wait and try to look at other sites and maybe obtain other land, then we would have to do that. A cost increase would include site servicing, because we would have to service that site and buy the land, where as we already have it today."

Council will consider the options as they put together the capital budget over the next couple months.
