Information on the upcoming arena referendum is available for Vernon, Coldstream, and electoral area residents.
A webpage of frequently asked questions has been launched about the Nov. 28 referendum and the proposed twinning of Kal Tire Place.
“It is our goal to inform residents, regional stakeholders and businesses of the upcoming referendum and to remind them that, ‘Your vote is your voice — speak up,’” said Doug Ross, director of recreation services for City of Vernon.
“We want our citizens to understand the current condition of the Civic Arena and why the proposed solution is to replace that ice sheet by twinning Kal Tire Place.”
The website also includes information on voting locations and voter eligibility, and provides background information including the Civic Arena engineering assessment report and the Civic Arena replacement feasibility study.
In addition to the webpage, public information booths will be set up around Greater Vernon between Sunday and Nov. 27.
“We want to ensure the public can find the answers they may have about the project, whether they are looking for general information or wish to drill down into the details,” said Ross.
“Our role is to ensure that voters have access to the information they need to make an informed choice.”
