Selling City Arenas - The Introduction

November 28, 2011

The City of Winnipeg will be getting out of the arena "business" by divesting the 15 City owned arenas to another party.

The process has begun with a tender process to determine interest.

The concern is accessibility which can be addressed through local non-profit partnership rather than the preferred choice of privately owned four-plex arenas.

For more information on the tender go to: http://www.winnipeg.ca/MatMgt/FolderContents.asp?FOLDER_NAME=430-2011&YEAR=2011

I will be requesting the opportunity to review the applications to ensure that the recommendations are based on merit and adequately addresses accessibility barriers.
