Joint site planning and shared utility servicing for both the Morinville Regional Arena/Multi-Use Recreation Facility and future Sturgeon County Campus is underway.
The adjacent development sites are located east of the Town of Morinville along Highway 642.
The site work is limited to site grading and general servicing of the site.
The site work will prepare the Town of Morinville’s 77-acre parcel for the proposed construction of the future Regional Arena/Multi-Use Recreation Facility along with Sturgeon County’s adjacent 50-acre parcel for the proposed future County Campus. There are still many decisions to be made regarding specific design, timing and scope of construction.
Both the Town of Morinville and Sturgeon County Councils understand the opportunities for collaboration where it can help to achieve Council’s goals and contribute to a shared vision; they have been working together since 2014.
Both municipalities have agreed to develop a Joint Business Case for the Regional Arena/Multi-Use Recreation Facility. The business case will include key areas of: project governance, financial requirements, project risks and mitigation measures. A joint sub-committee of the Intermunicipal Affairs Committee (IAC) has been developed and will see three Sturgeon County’s Councillors, Patrick D. Tighe, Jerry Kaup and Susan Evans along with Town of Morinville Councillors Nicole Boutestein, Stephen Dafoe and Gord Putnam for the purpose of supporting work on the Arena/Morinville Multi-Use Recreation facility and the pending application for grant funding.
