THE LATEST BUZZ FROM YOUR DEDICATED FACILITY COMMITTEE
We sent mail! The DFC sent Charlotte Curling members a letter on Monday (electronic version available here) containing exciting updates on our fundraising progress and a likely site for the dedicated ice facility. We have shifted into high gear – fundraising, designing the new facility down to how many rows of spectator chairs it should have, and crunching the financial numbers. A big “welcome aboard” to our newest committee member, Brady Gould!
Did I mention we’re dedicated to the task? You can be too. See http://charlottecurling.com/site/build-it-and-they-will-come/ for updates including the target area map for our dedicated facility.
DEDICATED FACILITY COMMITTEE ANNOUNCES SITE SELECTION FOCUS
The dedicated facility committee has targeted the area surrounding the intersection of interstates 85 and 77 as the ideal location for a dedicated curling facility (see the target area map below). Key attributes of this area include:
- proximity to major highways, thus drawing curlers from a wide area in both north/south and east/west directions
- “light industrial” zoning which would be required for a curling facility
- reasonable land costs
- nearby services
Several members with a wide array of talents and expertise have come forward to share ideas. The committee invites comments and suggestions from any member of the CCCA.
Stayed tuned. Plenty of regular updates to follow…
