Signatures of Support for the Springfield Rec Centre

We are signing this petition to show the Government of Manitoba, Ron Schuler & Reg Helwer, our support to our Mayor and Council for their application for a grant to help fund the construction of our Recreational Centre in Oakbank to service the RM of Springfield. 

We are a community of over 15 thousand; Having a Recreational Centre that can hold major events, be a hub for parents with young ones to come to for playtime or birthday parties, for our many fitness folks to host classes, to give our youth a place to hang out and participate in activities,for residents to have a place to walk, and create a space for the large municipality to come together. We have sorely needed this space for everyone to enjoy and utilize; it is something that our RM is severely lacking and with the funds from the grant we would be able to break ground in 2020.

There have been multiple attempts made over the years to see this project come to fruition and we are excited to put our support behind this- it is time that one of the oldest rural municipalities in the province moves forward and becomes a hub and destination for people to come to- to play, live and visit and we would benefit greatly if the grant was approved. With the Rec Centre being built, we also can look forward to the skate park officially opening this spring, and looking in the future to the splash pad and other amenities. 

We support our council and Mayor for their application to the Province of Manitoba for the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program; and we welcome the amazing things that will happen here when this Recreational Centre is built.
