Dundas' Grightmire Arena project gets conservation authority permit

News Apr 17, 2017 by Craig Campbell Dundas Star News

A Hamilton Conservation Authority permit was issued to the City of Hamilton on April 5 for construction of an addition to, and renovation of, Dundas’ J.L. Grightmire Arena.

The approval comes more than four years after the authority first raised concerns about flood control measures for doors facing Spencer Creek in original plans for the project.

With the authority’s approval, the city can move on with final site plan approval, applying for a building permit and tendering the project — all with the goal of beginning the long-awaited construction this summer and completing the job by September 2018.

“All technical issues related to the city’s permit application for the renovation of the arena have been addressed and the (authority) did issue a permit to the city on April 5,” said Mike Stone, authority manager of watershed planning services.

City spokesperson Cindy Csordas said project managers hope to apply for the building permit this week, upon approval of the site plan application.

“The architects indicated ... they would be ready to issue tender documents in about three weeks,” Csordas said.
