Civic Centre

Nelson Theatre potential recreation site

The Kootenay Climbing Association and the Nelson Squash Club have joined together in the effort to acquire a local space.

The Kootenay Climbing Association and the Nelson Squash Club have joined together in the effort to acquire a local space that will accommodate both of their needs in the community.

This Monday representatives from both parties will make a proposal to lease the top floor of the Civic Centre.

“This is an exciting opportunity to secure space for long standing recreational groups in our community,” they said in a press release.

This opportunity includes the possibility that other user groups may access additional space not occupied by the squash and climbing clubs.

The clubs say that they recognize that this proposal may create some concern in the community regarding the possibility of using the Civic Centre space for recreational use rather than once again as a theatre.

“Although this is a decision that is ultimately up to the City, the KCA believes that our proposal is a positive one for the community,” they said.

They will present their proposal to Council Monday at 7:30 p.m. and are encouraging all those interested to attend.
