Exhibition Park Seeking $25-Million In City Funding For Redevelopment Project

 
 
LETHBRIDGE - Exhibition Park is looking for $25-million in the upcoming city budget for their redevelopment project.

They want to build a 250,000 square foot Trade and Convention Centre, along with a 75,000 square foot Agriplex with a dirt floor arena and livestock pens.

The total project will cost about $90-million, with $50-million coming from Federal and Provincial Grants and $15 million from the Lethbridge and District Exhibition.

With so many projects and not enough cash to fund them all, General Manager Rudy Friesen feels this project should rank high on the priority list because "it's a project that fulfills multiple need in the community with a singular project, you're finally getting that trade and convention centre space in this community that we don't currently have, that brings in brand new business, and it does so in a fashion that supports the continued growth and development of Exhibition Park and it's community projects and programs as well."

Friesen says this project would allow them to significantly grow the size of things like Ag-Expo and the Home and Garden Show, as well provide new opportunities for groups who rent out their facilities.

All the projects pitched at Finance Committee will be debated be members of City Council in early May.
