TRURO - The official name of the new civic centre in Truro will be revealed this morning.
Ignite the Spirit campaign chair Jon Stanfield will make the announcement to media and project-related people at 10:30 a.m. The gathering is not open to the public, but details of the announcement will be available immediately following the event.
The $48-milion Central Nova Scotia Civic Centre was originally scheduled to open this fall, with membership programs beginning in January. However, delays, including peeling paint, have forced the opening to be delayed. Officials will announce a new opening date at a later time, but sources have indicated to the Truro Daily News that it will after Christmas at the earliest.
When it opens, the civic centre will include a 2,500-seat arena with a NHL-sized ice surface, an eight-lane, 25-metre, swimming pool and smaller therapeutic pool, a climbing wall, fitness centre and community meeting space.
