Civic Centre

Today is the day Regina-based Civic Centre Plaza Inc. makes public its plans for the retired hockey arena and former home of the Moose Jaw Warriors.

On Monday, Moose Jaw & District Chamber of Commerce executive director Brian Martynook told the Times-Herald a project such as the re-development of the Civic Centre site is indeed important to the community.

Anytime a large construction project comes to Moose Jaw, he said, the impact is felt all the way through the local economy. He said construction crews need to spend money, and new businesses equal employees who will be earning money locally, and thus spending it locally.

For more on this story, read an upcoming edition of the Times-Herald.

    This development on the civic centre site is great news for mj.However,some agreement should be reached between the mall and the future developers because of the cross parking agreement the mall has with the city.Hagel and the rest of the councillors seem that they are going to just ram this through without any concerns.It's dejavu,just like the behavior of the previous fab 5. Get ready mj,this is going to be interesting,and who knows,maybe costly.
