Get info, ask questions about arena referendum at these upcoming events

VERNON - You can expect to see local government officials promoting an upcoming arena referendum at a number of events this month.

Information booths will be set up throughout Greater Vernon in advance of the Nov. 28 referendum, which will ask voters to support decommissioning Civic Arena and adding a second ice sheet at Kal Tire Place.
“We want to provide as many ways for people to get information about the current condition of the Civic Arena, why the proposed site was selected for a new facility and what is included in the project,” director of recreation services Doug Ross said in a media release. “Information booths are being set up so that people see the conceptual drawings of the proposed facility, ask questions they may have, and get the answers they need to make an informed decision.”  
Information on voting dates, locations and voter eligibility will also be available. Booths will have background information including the Civic Arena engineering assessment report and the Civic Arena replacement feasibility study.
