Cedar hall floored by RDN deal

Cedar Community Hall visitors will have a bounce in their step thanks to a new eastern oak floor.

Cedar Community Hall visitors will have a bounce in their step thanks to a new eastern oak floor.

The Regional District of Nanaimo and the Cedar Community Association have established an agreement where the RDN, in providing the association with funding for hall improvements, will receive reduced rental rates for five years.

This helps the association make improvements to the hall and increase its usage, while providing the RDN with an affordable location for Area A recreation and culture programs.

The RDN provided a total of $48,000 from its Area A community parks budget, which can also be accessed to assist local non-profit organizations with improvements to community recreation facilities.

The association received $27,000 in 2011 for the new floor, and will receive $21,000 in 2012 to be used for exterior painting and new accordion-style doors in the facility.
