The United Conservative Party will support Alberta families by building stronger communities.
A re-elected UCP government will create the Community Recreation Centre Infrastructure Fund will ensure growing communities have the facilities they need to stay healthy and have strong youth sports opportunities. This $80 million investment over four years would especially help get mid-sized recreation facilities into rapidly growing communities sooner.
“Everyday, Alberta families rely on community facilities for children’s programs, fitness classes, recreation, and meeting spaces,” said UCP candidate for Calgary-Foothills Jason Luan. “By creating the Community Recreation Centre Infrastructure Fund, we can ensure that more Alberta families will have access to these programs and activities in their own neighbourhoods, which will foster relationships by bringing people together.”
The Community Recreation Centre Infrastructure Fund will direct $80 million over four years to mid-sized projects, like:
· Hockey arenas
· Community pools
· Indoor turf centres
Working alongside the existing Community Facility Enhancement Program, this new fund will direct $80 million over four years to ensure that public-use projects of all sizes are able to access funding, providing a community space to be enjoyed for years to come while also creating local jobs and economic activity.
Recreation centres and facilities are often the heart of Alberta’s communities, creating places for kids, seniors, adults, and newcomers to come together. The Community Recreation Centre Infrastructure Fund will help move Alberta forward by building healthy, vibrant and active communities that keep people connected and engaged.
A re-elected United Conservative government will continue its work to build stronger communities through investments like this and increased supports for public safety and economic growth.
