The Cariboo Regional District has awarded a contract for concept design services for the South Cariboo Recreation Centre expansion project in 100 Mile House.

The successful firm is HCMA Architecture and Design from Vancouver BC.+

CRD Electoral Area H Director Margo Wagner says the firm has worked on multiple recreation centres in the past which helped the CRD make their choice.

“They have done a gymnasium at the secondary school in Prince George, and indoor running track in Port Moody, and an indoor soccer stadium in Montreal.”

Wagner says the proposed project at this time would expand the South Cariboo Rec Centre to include an indoor field, a walking track, and a gymnasium.

Following the concept design stage the project will require approval from the Cariboo Regional District and The District of 100 Mile House before moving to public consultation.

The current timeline is to hold a referendum vote in the Spring of 2018.
