Major Infrastructure Announcement was be made by the Village of Lumby & the Regional District of the North Okanagan, Friday March 9, 2018, 9:45 a.m. at the Pat Duke Memorial Arena at 2270 Shields Ave.

The Village of Lumby and the Regional District of North Okanagan (Regional District) have been awarded $2,595,625 million dollars to make improvements to the Pat Duke Arena in Lumby, B.C.

The project will focus on adding four new change rooms and renovating the existing change rooms, but will also include upgrades to make the facility more operationally effective, safe, and energy efficient. To view a concept plan click here.

The Pat Duke Memorial Arena provides ice time for a variety of users, including minor hockey, figure skating, ringette and leisure ice uses, and has been serving the community since 1967. Unfortunately, due to its age, the needs of all of the facility users are not being met. Due to an insufficient number of change rooms, female ice users have had to use inadequate facilities during co-ed play. The arena also poses challenges for users with mobility issues, and does not meet today’s standards for accessibility. This funding will allow a significant renovation and addition to this cherished community arena, allowing it to continue to serve the North Okanagan well into the future.

The contribution of federal Gas Tax Fund money completes the required funding for the total project cost of $3 million dollars, adding to the $100,000 won by the community through Kraft Hockeyville, the $75,000 raised through fundraising, and the $230,000 provided by the Regional District of North Okanagan through the White Valley Parks, Recreation and Culture service.

Each year, the Government of Canada provides over $278 million in funding for local government infrastructure projects across British Columbia through the Federal Gas Tax Fund. The Union of BC Municipalities administers the Federal Gas Tax Fund in British Columbia in partnership with the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia.
