Rhineland has now received a copy of the draft to help the municipality's recreation activities moving forward.
The recreation study, initiated in 2015, was to provide a new perspective on ways to support and improve local facilities and programs for ratepayers.
“The Rhineland staff and council are now in the process of examining these recommendations and the implementation strategies in respect to this.” explained Reeve, Don Wiebe. “Obviously there is medium, short term and long term strategies. That's the process we've begun right now.”
Wiebe noted the municipality had many conversations with WSP Group of Winnipeg to gather the basic data for the study.
He added the process has also included online and paper surveys and community focused group meetings.
Meanwhile, during the Reeve's remarks on Reeve on the Radio he gave a fire update on the Plum Coulee Community Hall.
After a fire destroyed the Hall last month, the municipality is ready to clean up.
Wiebe stated they plan to have the inner demolition of the building done next week.
He said they also hope to complete an assessment on the building shortly.
“Well the final assessment of damage we have not yet had a number,” said Wiebe. “This is because the trades personal and the engineers have not quite finished their work, but we hope to see that number soon.”
Wiebe explains in the meantime they have been meeting with an architectural firm to discuss preliminary ideas about redesigning and bring the building up to code.
He adds they are working as quickly as possible with the intent to get ice in the arena as soon as possible.
The blaze which destroyed the kitchen, caused significant damage to the second floor hall, the main floor lobby and the dressing rooms.
