December 1st 2014 - Council Approves Coronation Recreation Centre Project
City Council voted 13-0 in favor of a motion that the Coronation Recreation Centre be added to the 2015 - 2018 Capital Budget as follows:
- Design completion in 2017 for $1.45M, funded by the Argyll Velodrome Association and the Edmonton Triathlon Academy.
- Construction to take place between 2018 and 2020.
The drawings for the project are currently 65% complete and will require the Cycling (Argyll Velodrome Association) and Triathlon (Edmonton Triathlon Academy) to provide the first $1.45M of their $20M commitment to finish the drawings so that construction can begin in 2018. This would allow the building to be complete in 2020. The total project is expected to cost $112M.
