Greater Vernon residents can have a say on the community’s newest arena.

The City of Vernon and MQN Architects will hold several consultation sessions on expanding Kal Tire Place to include a second ice sheet.

“We will present the design to date and ask for input on that design,” said Doug Ross, the City of Vernon’s recreation manager.

The sessions will be 1 to 2:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Lakers Clubhouse, 1 to 2:30 p.m. Thursday at the Coldstream Women’s Institute Hall and 1 to 2:30 p.m. Friday at the BX fire hall.

There will also be a session from 7 to 8:30 p.m. June 6 at the Kal Tire Place Grand Room

City staff and the architects are also meeting with user groups and other stakeholders.

Ross is urging Greater Vernon residents to become involved in the process.

“We want to get input from the public,” he said.

The tender for construction of the $13 million ice sheet could be issued early in 2017.
