At its regular meeting Monday council approved the Jan. 6 draft design development report for the NexSource Centre and directed staff and the prime consultant, CEI Architecture to proceed to the contract documents phase for the multiplex redevelopment project.

The estimated cost of construction of the project which is to include an arena, curling rink, seniors’ centre and children’s play area is about $28.3 million.

The overall cost of the project is $30.6 million.

Council unanimously approved support for the Sylvan Lake Regional Water Commission for the construction of a regional water pipeline to provide water to the Town of Sylvan Lake and area from the Red Deer River.

In his report to council, director of public works Dave Brand said the town’s 10 year capital plan does include a lump sum amount to fund the town’s anticipated portion of the capital cost of a new pipeline ($4.5 million in 2021). If the project is approved for 90 per cent funding by the province, the town and the commission can determine at a future date the details of how to fund the remaining cost, Brand said.
