Comox Valley curlers can expect to have a new-look rink by the end of the year.

Last year, the public agreed to renovate the aged facility at the exhibition grounds by way of the Alternate Approval Process, authorizing the regional district to borrow $1.9 million for renovations and capital improvements.

The CVRD owns the facility and leases the building to the Comox Valley Curling Club, which will contribute $100,000 to the project.

Under terms of a five-year agreement, the club is responsible for operating the facility on a year-round basis.

The curling rink has been a fixture in the Valley since the 1950s. At present, club membership is about 550 and has grown slightly in recent years.

The tender is scheduled to go out late-January.

The project is slated to commence mid-April and be completed by December.

Last fall, a contract to provide engineering and contract management/construction oversight services for the project was awarded to Bruce Carscadden Architect of Vancouver, in association with Thomas Dishlevoy Architecture of Comox, for just under $200,000.
