NTRC expansion approved for seniors' centre addition

Posted December 3, 2013

With funding sources in place that will not require taxpayer dollars, councillors last night agreed to fast-track approval for a 4,000 sq. ft addition to the New Tecumseth Recreation Centre (NTRC) that will be primarily used by the 54 Plus Club.

Last night, with the public gallery full of 54 Plus Club members looking on, council gave pre 2014 budget approval for the project estmated net cost of $895,468. The 54 Plus Club is contributing $256,000, and the remainder will be covered by parks and recreation development charges.

The approval will be ratified next Monday night triggering the next steps including a site plan agreement, and the negotiations "between the Town and the 54 Plus Club to provide for such matters as priority booking by the 54 Plus Club of the expansion space for core programming requirements, use of the expansion space for Town for programming and other related matters."

The project, expected to begin next spring, will be located in the northeast corner of the exterior field house wall. It will include meeting space, activity room, a small kitchenette and washrooms. It will have a separate entrance but be linked to the balance of the facility.
