DEER LAKE, N.L. — The federal government is providing funding to build an annex on the Hodder Memorial Recreation Complex in Deer Lake, N.L.
The project involves building a two-storey community facility with meeting and multipurpose spaces as well as a gym with walking track and facilities for basketball, volleyball and indoor soccer, a release states. The annex will be connected to the existing complex by a second level pedestrian access way and will be accessible thanks to a new elevator.
The Government of Canada is investing more than $1.5 million in the projects through the Community, Culture and Recreation Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada infrastructure plan. The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador is providing over $1.5 million and the Town of Deer Lake is contributing over $1.5 million.
“Our government is pleased to partner with our federal and municipal partners to support this project for the people of Deer Lake and surrounding areas,” said Dwight Ball, premier of Newfoundland and Labrador, in a statement. “Enhancements to municipal infrastructure, such as the expansion to the Deer Lake Annex, supports local employment opportunities and enables communities and businesses to benefit over the long-term.”
