Port’s multipurpose complex is waiting

  • Aug. 26, 2005 11:00 a.m.

Port Clements residents will probably have to wait another month to find out whether construction will go ahead on the planned multi-purpose complex, says village administrator Dana Schmidt.
The village has asked for a one-year extension on the federal/provincial grant it was awarded, but hasn’t heard an answer. The project was supposed to be completed by March 31, 2006, a deadline which is now impossible to meet.
“Basically, we are still in a holding pattern,” she said. The village applied for the extension several months ago, in April, after it became obvious the building could not be constructed for the amount which had been fundraised. The extension will give the village time to reconfigure the project.
The proposed building would include a gym, library space, a seniors’ room and council chambers, and was to be constructed near the community park.
The multi-purpose building society held its annual general meeting Thursday, conducting routine business. The society appointed two new directors – Gerry Johnson and Paul Waring – to replace two who had moved away. The other directors are president Dennis Reindl, vice-president and treasurer Lisa Waring and secretary Corrina Hornidge.
