The Town of Arnprior has extended the SENS Rink Location Survey until Wednesday, February 28th at 5:00pm.
Council of the Town of Arnprior has supported, in principle, a proposal to construct a Sens Rink within the Town of Arnprior. The Rink would be a 200’ x 85’ outdoor rink equipped with permanent boards and overhead lighting (6 lamp posts). There will be a concrete pad under the ice to allow for the surface to be used year round for other sports including basketball with nets. The capital construction costs, other than for the overhead lighting, would be obtained from fundraising donations and/or in-kind donation of materials/services. The donations are planned to be obtained by the Sens Foundation and their community partners, the Arnprior Optimist Club and M. Sullivan & Son Limited. The land must be provided or arranged by the Town.
Part of the ‘agreement’ with the Sens Foundation is that the Town will assume responsibility and associated costs for year-round recreational programming and maintenance of the Sens Rink.
The Town has identified two potential options for the location of a Sens Rink. While there are pros and cons related to each location, there are also costs associated with running the facility based on the proposed locations. More detailed background information can be found below, on the second floor at Town Hall, 105 Elgin Street West, Arnprior, Ontario, or by contacting Robin Paquette, Town Planner, at 613-623-4231 ext. 1827 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The two locations being considered are:
Location #1 – On the Algonquin Trail fronting on Meehan Street – Please note that this land
is owned by the County of Renfrew and would require an agreement for use.
Location #2 – On the Nick Smith Centre property fronting on James Street
Before making a decision on the precise location of the Rink, the following information is being provided for consideration. Council would like your feedback on the location:
