Bracebridge Applies For $36 Million In Funding For New Multi-Use Community Centre

Bracebridge | by Matt Sitler  

The Town has made it official and applied for $36 million from upper levels of government for the project.

Bracebridge is hoping to get lots of money for a new multi-use community centre/arena.

The Town has made it official and applied for $36 million from upper levels of government for the project.

If successful, the Town would still itself pay $13.1 million for the new centre, which would include a new multi-use field house, single pad arena and library amongst other attributes. 

It would all go on lands off Salmon Avenue when and if it becomes a reality.

The upper-level funding breakdown, should the application be successful, would see the Town receive $19.6 million from the Federal government and $16.4 million from the Province.

Mayor Graydon Smith says the project provides "an unprecedented opportunity for the Town to expand its inclusive and accessible recreation, culture and community service programming."
