Four sites have made the short list for the new twinpad arena and multi-use recreation facility in Wasaga Beach.
Two of the sites are in the east end of town and two in the south-central part of the community.
Staff ranked the remaining six sites using a number of factors, including the size of each site, location, planning and costs.
At a recent committee of the whole meeting, staff was instructed to formalize a timeline to have appraisals completed, agreements of purchase and sale signed for all privately owned sites.
The town will seek public input on the short listed sites, most likely before the end of June.
