CENTREVILLE, N.B. — The governments of Canada and New Brunswick are investing more than $3 million in joint funding for the construction of a new recreation complex in Centreville, N.B.
The new 42,000-square-foot multi-use community complex will provide a central gathering place for recreational and cultural activities, including community festivals, school events, trade shows, rodeos, tractor pulls and automotive shows, as well as agricultural shows and exhibits, indicates a release issued by Infrastructure Canada.
The building will be designed in a U-shape with more than 4,000 stadium-style seats and the ability to add an additional 4,000 seats to the infield.
Not only will this facility increase public participation in community activities, but it will allow the community to be better positioned to promote economic growth, adds the release.
The Government of Canada is contributing more than $1.8 million to this project and the Government of New Brunswick is providing more than $1 million. The Village of Centreville is providing the balance of the funding.
