Council voted to give five recommendations for the Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund at last night's regular scheduled meeting. The new fund provided by the federal government would support repairs and improvements as well as expansions of existing community infrastructures.
At the top of the list was Delaney Arena and Fort William Stadium. The recommendation listed the two arenas needed improvements to the parking lot areas, an expansion for concession preparation and new accessible washrooms.
Trails took second priority in order to replace and add new lighting in selected locations including Boulevard Lake, County Park, McVicar Creek and Lakehead University.
Other project recommended by council included a connection from Boulevard Lake to Trowbridge, Centennial and King Horn trails, two splash pads for North End Recreation Centre and James Street Playfield and improvements to Thunder Bay Transit bus shelters.
