The TG Smith Centre was buzzing with excitement Wednesday evening during an in-person open house to look at details for the new Southeast Event Centre.
Senior Operations Manager Paul Penner says the current plan is very similar to the one that was presented in December at the virtual open house.
“We’re still in the same concept,” Penner notes. “There’s minor changes, as we get through detailed drawings now, we do have some small changes, but there's nothing large changed.”
City Planner Lacey Gaudet says it was great to have an opportunity to meet in person with the public.
“It’s nice to see the community coming in, giving their feedback, telling us their comments on this new building,” she says.
The virtual open house resulted in some really good feedback, she adds. But Gaudet says there is just a different atmosphere when you can meet in person and have some conversations.
