A proposal to replace the old arena with an attraction
In last week’s “Center Gift Shop” torn down for a parking lot posting, regular visitor Drafty left a comment about another potential development in the city. Apparently the old arena on Centre St may be torn down to make way for an attraction that is a big boat (Drafty guess the Titanic). The a document on the city web site (or here if the city website link changes) indicates the application came from a David van Velzen. I searched for his name on Google, and the top result is a link to a LinkedIn profile. his title is “Owner/Director at The Titanic Project Inc”
I drive by the old arena twice a day on my way to and from work, and I’ve never noticed any notice of public meeting. After Drafty linked to the document, the next time I drove over I pulled over to check out the building. As you can see by the pictures, I don’t imagine there were many people who could see the “Notice of Public Meeting” behind the glass on the door third from the right!
