The contract for renovating the Sandspit Community Hall will go to tender in January. Moresby Island Management Committee chair Gord Usher said the plans include revamped bathrooms and a new kitchen, along with green innovations like a solar panel for hot water and a water collection system. He said the heating system is still being discussed, but they are trying to stay away from oil and propane. The new hall will be super-insulated with spray foam and an office will be built onto the front of the building where MIMC will be housed. Mr. Usher said work should start on the Towns for Tomorrow funded project by March and has to be completed by March 2011.
