Prince George, B.C. – The construction project to upgrade Masich Place Stadium will officially start one week from today.
The $4.4 million Masich Place Redevelopment Project will see the installation of the first outdoor synthetic field in Northern B.C.. The project will also see the development of consolidated jump area, permanent throwing facilities and cages, track resurfacing, and upgrades such as trail development.
To do the work, Masich Place Stadium will be closed to the public from the 19th through the entire season and will not reopen until the spring of 2018.
The City has made arrangements to provide alternate sites for user groups.
An open house has been organized for next Wednesday to share information on the project. Residents will be able to ask City staff questions about the project, and get an information brochure detailing the project. Information is also available online.
The open house will take place Wednesday May 17th from 5:30 to 8:30 at Masich Place Stadium.
The City’s contribution to the cost is $925 thousand dollars and the balance of the budget is made up of $3.2 million from the Federal Government’s Gas tax fund and $250 thousand from the NDIT’s Economic Diversification Infrastructure Program.
So, Did the city ‘talk’ to the residents near this site? Or are they just doing it; sounds like another case of ‘we’re spending your money’ like it or not.
So I guess the construction at Lakewood is to get that field up to date for the season while Massic Place is down? I hope so as it would be a shame if they were removing that one as well.
Best idea yet, used a lot by the citizens and events! Like the 24 hour walk coming up Saturday. Of course, people that don’t exercise or believe in a healthy lifestyle will state their negative comments! Suck it up buttercups! This is a positive move! Sure there will be inconveniences, but the schools and some teams will benefit! We in the North have a great propensity to improvise and adapt, so all is good!
