Arena upgrades on track

A draft concept plan is being finalized for major upgrades to Lumby's Pat Duke Memorial Arena.

The plan will provide costing for renovations and construction to provide new change rooms to better serve the growing number of female hockey players.

“The objective of this project is to achieve four new change rooms through expansion and renovation of the existing building, and two additional change rooms through renovation of the existing change room area," says RDNO community services manager Tannis Nelson.

“The project also includes additional storage, upgraded referee facilities, and a heated lobby and viewing area.”

The aging arena also no longer meets accessibility standards, she added.

A community effort to upgrade the arena began in 2016 with local fundraising, and ended up with Lumby winning Kraft Hockeyville 2016, receiving $100,000 to put towards improving the facility. 

“The Pat Duke Arena is a cherished facility in the Village of Lumby and surrounding area," said community services general manager Mike Fox. “The RDNO looks forward to the completion of this project, and an increased enjoyment of the facility.”

Once complete, the concepts will be made public at an open house expected in February.
