As the proposed aquatic centre moves closer to shovel-ready status, the Timmins Chamber of Commerce is looking for the business community’s thoughts on the project.

The City of Timmins says the project could cost roughly $48-million, but won’t move ahead without support from all government levels and the private sector. Manager of Policy Nick Stewart says the chamber is putting out a survey to the business community to gauge what businesses think.

Stewart says businesses are being asked if they think the project should move forward and if they will contribute to the fundraising campaign.

He adds once the detailed designs come through the fundraising campaign will most likely start moving ahead. He says the chamber wants to form a firm stance on the project before that happens.

The survey is open until 5:00pm on November 14th. Click here for more information.
