Tentative plans to improve facilities in Terrace, B.C.

If the City of Terrace approves their provisional budget, athletes can look forward to a series of improvements to local sports facilities.

Included in the city’s provisional budget is money to resurface the tennis courts on Halliwell Avenue.

If the City of Terrace approves their provisional budget later this spring, then Terrace athletes can look forward to a series of improvements to sports facilities around town.

The city plans to renovate the female dressing room (number 6) of the old rink at the Sportsplex.

They will add washrooms and showers at an estimated $30,000 cost for the city, as they expect to have to replace a lot of flooring and copper piping as well.

Second, the city aims to level and reseed one of the soccer fields at Christie Park, paid for through a $30,000 grant from the Northern Development Initiative Trust.

The field that has been slated for maintenance this year will be chosen at the end of March by the Terrace Youth Soccer Association, likely the big centre field or the northwest one.

TYSA director Warren Copeland said they have a plan with the city to fix all four fields and bring them back up to provincial standards.

They started last year with the field most in need of repair, and Copeland says by the end of the summer last year it looked really nice.

“It makes for a better, safer facility for everybody and it isn’t just soccer players, the field is very widely used by the public in general as well. It’s a great thing that we are getting this done,” he said.

“Hopefully we can progress forward and in a few short years we should have a top notch facility again.”

The third recreation project in the city’s provisional budget is to fix and resurface the tennis courts on Halliwell Avenue.

Due to the wait for final budget approval, the timelines of these projects are yet to be determined, but are tentatively planned for this year.
