Sarnia is exploring the idea of a new indoor recreation facility.

Council has approved a $74,000 feasibility study and business case for a multi-purpose building to accommodate various recreational and leisure activities.

The study will include a list of possible locations for the proposed facility, said Stacey Forfar, general manager of community services.

“This is meant to really just initiate a bit of a location study and provide some options to council moving forward in terms of what that could look like, and go from there,” she told councillors last month.

The contract was awarded to London-based Monteith Brown Planning Consultants.

Multi-use facilities are common in communities with 50,000 residents or more, and cities such as Brantford, Woodstock and Guelph have developed them in partnership with community groups, a staff report says.
