Council meets with delegation on multiplex

NANAIMO – Delegation interested in pursuing sports and entertainment facility met with city staff and council.

A delegation interested in pursuing a sports and entertainment facility in Nanaimo met with city staff and council members Tuesday.

The group, which consisted of Ron Robison, commissioner of the Western Hockey League; Alan Lowe, former mayor of Victoria; Graham Lee and Dave Dakers of RG Properties; and Ken Wagner, co-owner of the Nanaimo Clippers, provided city officials with information on potential construction and operation of a facility.

“[Tuesday’s] presentation gave council members and staff an opportunity to hear details on the business interests surrounding these facilities as well as the chance to ask questions,” said Mayor John Ruttan. “At this time, no decisions have been made.”

City staff is currently writing a report that will go before council at an upcoming council meeting.
