City Eyes Site for 4 Seasons Pool Project
rince George, B.C. – The proposed replacement of the Four Seasons Pool and Fire Hall #1 are both front and centre on the agenda for Prince George City Council this evening.
Staff have prepared a report suggesting a 7th Avenue location for a new Four Seasons Pool, should the referendum set for this fall be approved.
The site is the 7th Avenue block bordered by Dominion on the east, and Quebec on the west. Currently, the site is home to the Days Inn and a parking lot.
The proposed construction cost of a new pool is $35 million dollars, but that does not include the cost of purchasing the site, demolition of existing structures and preparation of the site for construction.
Council will also be asked to approve first three readings of the bylaws to borrow the money for the construction of a new pool ($35 million) and fire hall ($15 million) in preparation for the referendum this fall. The actual questions that will appear on the referendum will also be presented for Council’s approval.
