GMDC holds information meeting Sunday in Masset

  • Sep. 12, 2008 3:00 p.m.

The Greater Massett Development Corp. will hold a public meeting Sunday night to let everyone know what will be happening to the rec centre’s equipment after the centre closes Sept. 30. Administrator Memory Brown said new homes have been found for all the equipment, which will be loaned out until the GMDC builds a new recreation centre. Ms Brown said directors will also share the information about plans for a new recreation centre at Sunday’s meeting. The GMDC now has a full slate of eight directors, she said, with Old Massett having appointed Jason Majore to replace May Russ, who resigned this summer. Old Massett has also reappointed John Disney and John T. Jones for two-year terms on the board. Sunday’s meeting starts at 7 pm at the Howard Phillips Community Hall in Masset. The GMDC’s last public meeting was held just one month ago. At that point, the board explained to a packed community hall that it had made the difficult decision to close the swimming pool and rec centre due to overwhelming financial losses and the skyrocketing cost of heating. The board said it would start raising money to build a new rec centre which will be the right size for the community’s needs and be designed to be energy-efficient.
