Recreation Campus Redevelopment

Media Release: 
RE: Recreation Campus Redevelopment

Following public consultation at the February 10, 2019 Recreation Campus Redevelopment Open House and subsequent online survey, the City of Salmon Arm and the Shuswap Recreation Society, in conjunction with consultants HCMA Architecture and Design, carefully considered all feedback received. We heard several consistent themes that we feel represent the needs of the community.   
The community does not support a Facility closure to redevelop the existing pool infrastructure. There was also very limited support from Performing Arts stakeholders for the conversion of the Auditorium to a Performing Arts space, and as a result, we will move toward updating this space for multi use.

The feedback supported the inclusion of 8 lanes in the main pool. We understand that this is important to many users and in order to provide a Facility that will meet demands well into the future, we intend to plan for that outcome. 
The City and the Society look forward to the incorporation of these details into the plans, as well as illustrations of additional amenities that will make this a Facility that provides exciting recreational opportunities for all patrons in the region. 

A Final Report from the consultants is expected in late March, at which time more details will be shared.
