RE: TOWNSHIP  CLOSES CHATSWORTH ARENA

CHATSWORTH, ON, June 8, 2017 – Township of Chatsworth Council unanimously made the difficult decision to close the 50 year old facility effective September 30, 2017.

Township officials received a structural report from its engineers, GM Blue  Plan which cited several structural concerns, including split roof trusses, historical water damage, and deteriorating concrete block pilasters and requires a new HVAC system.  The facility would also have to be brought into AODA Compliance, adding to the cost.   The report indicates that GM blue Plan is confident in stating that the rate of deterioration has accelerated.

“It was a difficult decision, but the costs to bring it up to standard and deal with the structural issues on an aging facility was not financially feasible”,  stated Mayor Bob Pringle.

Preliminary planning is already underway to host a Chatsworth Community Center Reunion and Farewell event  in late September .
