Councillor Chris Mayne says we are closer than ever to the Cassellholme redevelopment.

Council unanimously passed a motion of support for the project last night and nine other member municipalities will do the same in the next couple of weeks.

The City’s share of the $65 million estimate is approximately $1 million per year for 25 years, over and above the $2.5 million yearly operating cost.

Mayne, who also sits on the Cassellholme board, says with all of the members in agreement and the blessing of the province to proceed, the tendering process can begin for the project that has been on the drawing board for several years and multiple Councils.
