Township begins the ice-installation process

Township crews began chilling the Arena on Friday afternoon as the first stage of installing ice at the two ice-pad facility. Ice-making will take approximately two weeks and the Township plans to reopen the Arena on Oct 14th, if not sooner.

“North Durham Minor Hockey and all our user-group partners are excited to be able to initiate our programming at the Uxbridge Arena”, says Doug Dunlop of the North Durham Minor Hockey Association.  We look forward to a safe and well managed return to our activities and are appreciative of the collaborative approach that was undertaken with the Township.

“After consultation with our user groups, we have a solution that keeps our participants safe, gets kids on the ice and shares the financial risks.  It was important to ensure the costs of a sudden or unexpected closure were not completely borne by our taxpayers”, states Mayor Barton.  “This community is passionate about hockey and skating, and I am glad we were able to work collaboratively with users to make this happen.”
