THUNDER BAY – The Open Houses on preliminary facility configuration and site options for a proposed Multipurpose Event Centre (Multiplex) that are taking place this week will also be available through a live stream on www.netnewsledger.com. The City is looking for citizens’ views, comments and suggestions as the planning phase moves into its next stage, and site locations and business models are being narrowed down.
“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 Open Houses held, with a presentation at 7 pm, followed by a question and answer forum and feedback opportunities:
Wednesday, June 1 – 6:30 – 9 pm
DaVinci Centre, Marco Polo Room, 340 Waterloo St. S
Thursday, June 2 – 6:30 – 9 pm
Italian Cultural Centre, Main Hall, 132 Algoma St. S
