THUNDER BAY – The City of Thunder Bay is looking for citizens’ views, comments and suggestions on preliminary facility configuration and site options for a proposed Multipurpose Event Centre (Multiplex). “We want to hear from the public as the planning phase moves into its next stage,” said Mayor Keith Hobbs. “We will be narrowing down site locations and business models for more detailed study.”
The Multiplex is proposed in the City’s Renew Thunder Bay Plan as a high priority, major legacy project over the next five years. The next set of Open Houses will allow the public to provide their input on where the facility should be located and how they would like to see it operated.
“This facility could be a major economic development catalyst for the City, but it must also be affordable to taxpayers and have a strategic location that maximizes opportunity to draw events, users and visitors at a regional, national and international level,” said City Manager Tim Commisso.
There will be two public meetings, one at The Da Vinci Centre from 6:30 to 9:00PM on June 1st and the second on June 2nd at The Italian Cultural Centre from 6:30 to 9:00PM.
Both public meetings will be live-streamed on NetNewsledger.com
