BUILDING A RECREATIONAL FACILITY at the HEART of 8 GROWING WEST COAST COMMUNITIES!
The project will feature an arena in phase one, a pool in phase two, and potential subsequent phases.
This multi-phased recreational facility will be centrally located on ACRD land, along Airport Road nearby the airport and the Long Beach Golf Course.
A unique partnership between the Districts of Tofino and Ucluelet, Long Beach Area C and the First Nations communities of Ahousaht, Toquaht, Yuułuiłath, Tla-o-qui-aht and Hesquiaht.
More children and youth are facing the lack of recreational facilities on the West Coast and so too are adults and seniors. With an average of 3 meters of rain per year, our winters are wet, cold, and tough. The rugged West Coast has limited access to small indoor facilities; no indoor arena facility or anything of that size. Our growing communities need more recreational facilities to offer diverse and sufficient programs and activities that will keep all residents here, engaged, well and healthy, all year!
Our communities need an indoor recreational space: the West Coast Multiplex.
GRANT APPLICATION: Waiting to hear back!
Phase one of the project is shovel ready: planning and budgeting is complete, and approvals are in place.
In July 2021, the West Coast Multiplex Society and Tla-o-qui-aht First Nations on behalf of our eight west coast communities applied for the “Green and Inclusive Community Buildings Program” grant which could provide up to $19 million for the construction of the Multiplex Phase 1 – Arena.
A LEADING HAND CREATING A REGIONAL RECREATIONAL STRATEGY
In December 2021, the West Coast Multiplex Society has hired Tom Berekoff from TPB Strategic Counsel to support the project. Tom helped the Upper Skeena Recreation Centre become a reality; a great example of many community partners coming together to build a recreation facility.
