District of Port Edward reviewing gym access

District of Port Edward council continues to look into opening up access to the old Port Edward School gym for community members

District of Port Edward council continues to look into opening up access to the old Port Edward School gym for community members to play basketball, volleyball, floor hockey and indoor soccer.

At the Nov. 10 council meeting, Polly Pereira, director of corporate administrative services told council that the district is looking into the matter, which was originally brought up by district Coun. James Brown, who said he had been approached by members of the community who would like evening access to the gym for various sports for adults and youth. The district is exploring gym supervision options.

In addition, Coun. Brown brought another request to council, indicating he had talked to neighbourhood kids who were using the basketball courts below the district chambers.

“They were wondering if they could get another basketball net, so they could have end to end basketball hoops … from west to east, and to possibly resurface the court there,” Coun. Brown said.

Port Edward council motioned to look into quotes to accommodate the court as well as other options.

Other updates from the Nov. 10 Port Edward council meeting included the district’s donation of coats or other items for the Charles Hays Secondary School (CHSS) junior and senior basketball teams’ Loonie Auction, held on Nov. 25.

Council will responded to the letter that senior girls’ coach Anna Ashley sent to council on the matter.
