MTO REDEVELOPMENT LATEST NEWS - DECEMBER 2020
The latest news is reproduced from the President's Report from Blackmail #16 of 24 December 2020:
"2020 has been a frustrating year for the MTO Redevelopment Committee. The Project has progressed but not sufficiently enough for us to meet expected milestones. This is inevitably going to delay the proposed September 2021 opening of the Indoor Centre. It’s fair to say this is a disappointing outcome considering the funding announcement was in March 2019 (21 months ago) and funding has been made available to Council for these works.
We have collectively put hundreds of hours of time into this and the Redevelopment Committee wants nothing more than to get started on the Indoor Centre and the project overall, but we have to work within the parameters of the Project, its governance arrangements and its funding.
The Oval works, to rebuild the oval surface and square, will be undertaken by the Council’s Parks Division. This is still expected to proceed on schedule with the works beginning in the second half of winter 2021. MTO wil be out of action in 2021/22 but back in its new form the following summer. The Club thanks the Parks Team for their work in progressing this."
Jeremy Hook, President NDCC"
