Online Open House Available for Proposed Event Centre


February 27, 2012 – The City of Thunder Bay is looking for more engagement with its citizens during the Open House & Information Session being held by the proposed Event Centre’s Consulting Team.

The event takes place on Wednesday, Feb. 29 from 3 pm to 9 pm at the Italian Cultural Centre, and will include presentations at 4 pm and 7 pm of concept designs for each of the three sites including commentary on the economic impact, traffic issues, cost implications and site selection criteria.

The event will also be live-streamed on www.tbnewswatch.com. Residents can use the hashtag #tbvoice to tweet and join the conversation at any time.

To improve engagement, there will also be an Online Open House available at www.thunderbay.ca/eventcentre from Feb. 29 to Mar. 15 where residents can view the materials from the Open House and fill out the online questionnaire.

There will be an update to City Council on March 12 from the Consulting Team. A second open house will be held on April 11. The Consulting Team will make a recommendation to City Council as to a preferred site in late May, followed by a third open house in early June.
