AQUATIC CENTRE CONSTRUCTION STARTS; MAYOR ISSUES FUNDRAISING CHALLENGE

“We’re thrilled to see the fencing up and work starting on this project,” says Brooker. “This new facility will be a huge benefit for Cochrane and area families, and enhance life for everyone who lives or visits Cochrane.”

Mayor Brooker also challenged community groups to raise the most money over the next month or so.

“Rock the Waves has an ambitious fundraising goal to meet,” says Mayor Brooker. “We know our local community groups, sports teams and other non-profits are excited to contribute and have their contributions celebrated.”

Groups will work to meet the Mayor’s current challenge until April 30. Top fundraisers will be announced at the community celebration scheduled for Friday May 8.

The construction means changes to access and parking at Spray Lake Sawmills Family Sports Centre. Updates and live webcam feeds can be found on www.cochrane.ca/construction.

Total capital budget for the new facility is $45 million, with funding coming from Provincial Municipal Sustainability Initiative (MSI) grants, Rocky View County contribution, Federal Gas Tax Fund and developer Community Enhancement fees.

Rock the Waves community fundraising campaign goal is to raise $10.6 million in contributions and sponsorships. Look for contribution information on RocktheWaves.ca, as well as partner information, details on the project in general and a timeline.

Anticipated opening of the new facility is spring 2017.
