Exhibition Park is asking City Council for 25 million dollars towards the 90
million dollar redevelopment project that would include a new Trade and
Convention Centre and Agriplex.
Rudy Friesen says the project will be
worth the investment because its something that everyone in the city can benefit
from and creates an opportunity for growth in the city by bringing new
activities into the community.
Friesen adds, in terms of economic impact, "Just the new opportunities that we
would bring into town that don't even currently come here, would represent $30
million over the first 10 years of the project."
City Council will debate all the proposed projects from May 6th to 10th to
determine which projects should receive funding.
