Repairs push back opening at Civic Arena

Nelson’s old Civic Arena will open a week later than expected this season as it undergoes some urgent repairs.

A few issues have been discovered with the 80 year old heritage venue’s foundation as well as with lead-based paint and mold.

Mayor Deb Kozak says while necessary, this project was not part of the original upgrade plan.

Work on the roof will have to wait.

The cost of this project is expected to be around $100,000.

Extra parking spaces will be created on the one side of the old building.

The arena opens October 13th.
