New Midland rink on schedule, waiting for permits

IMG 2071

Demolition of the old Midland Rink is wrapping up and the area is beginning to look much different.
Since ground broke on the project in the spring on the new fully accessible NHL size outdoor rink, many local community members and businesses have come out to help volunteers and assist the Midlandvale Community Hall Association (MHCA) with the demolition. The foundation and old rink boards have been removed, along with some trees that were in the way of the new construction.
As demolition is nearing completion, the MCHA is waiting for the Town of Drumheller to issue the building permits needed in order to take the next steps. Cindy Sereda, a volunteer with the MCHA and who has been overseeing the project, tells the Mail what those next steps are.
“Reward Construction will be coming in to build the concrete foundation of the new rink and set up the new boards and basketball nets. We are hoping this will be a four to six week timeline once they get started,” says Sereda. “Amongst the rink construction, we will be having local volunteers and local licensed tradesmen working on the new skate shack, washrooms and storage garage.”
The MCHA is still about $125,000 from their fundraising goal. They have a raffle coming up thanks to West Jet and their Gift of Flight donation. More information will be posted on the MCHA website and Facebook page when it becomes available.
“We can’t wait to have this project ready for the entire community to enjoy!” exclaims Sereda.
