    In fall 2023, the Standing Policy Committee on Community Services approved in principle the East of the Red RecPlex Feasibility Study update. A detailed timeline with the next steps was prepared.

    The City has started planning for the next stage of the project, which includes a preliminary design and Class 3 cost estimate (accuracy of -20% to +30%). A Class 3 cost estimate is required for Council review and potential funding.

    On March 22, 2023, Council allocated $2 million to start the next stage of the project. The next stage includes a preliminary design and a Class 3 cost estimate (-20% to +30%). Council also directed the Public Service to prepare an estimated timeline for the Class 3 cost estimate, design, site preparation, and construction of the East of the Red RecPlex.

    The Public Service will report back to the Standing Policy Committee on Community Services in fall 2023 with the estimated timeline. Future stages of the project need Council approval and funding before beginning. Funding requires participation from other levels of government.
