Gary Martin Arena Project Moving Ahead

(Monday, September 22, 2008)– Earlier today HRM's Permits and Inspections Division issued a permit to Lydon Lynch Architects on behalf of the Rocky Lake Development Association. This approval allows Phase One of the Gary Martin Arena project to commence.

The Phase One construction includes final site preparation, site services such as sewer and water, as well as, construction of the foundations and slab.

Councillor Tim Outhit, District 21 - Bedford said, " This represents a major step forward in the construction of this facility. I would like to thank the Rocky Lake Development Association and Mayor Peter Kelly for their efforts in bringing about this much needed community rink. I would also like to thank Minister Len Goucher and the province for their financial support."

Phase two of the development will include placement of an air supported structure and construction of locker room and wash room facilities.

This interim facility will provide valuable ice-time capacity until such time as permanent multi-surface rinks are built. The future multi-surface facility will also be named in honour of the late Councillor Gary Martin.
