Downtown arena location revealed

The municipality has revealed where it’s planning to put the new downtown arena as part of the city centre redevelopment.

On tomorrow night’s council agenda, council is being asked to approve the expropriation of properties on the same block as the former Oil Can Tavern, at Franklin and Morrison.

It’s also being asked to take properties at the intersection of Biggs Avenue and Main Street.

Municipal staff say negotiations to buy those properties haven’t been successful, and so the city needs to use the Land Compensation Board to acquire them.
