The Blackfalds RCMP are currently investigating both a collision and a carjacking that occurred this morning.

At 8:12 a.m. the RCMP responded to a 911 call about the carjacking which had just occurred.  A male driving a truck collided with a school bus on Township Road 372 and Range Road 281.  When a passerby stopped to offer assistance, the male suspect pointed a handgun and demanded her vehicle.  He fled in the victim’s Mitsubishi Outlander, heading westbound on Township Road 372.

From the Town of Blackfalds: Multi-Plex Arena Expansion

The 2015 Recreation, Culture, and Parks Needs Assessment and Master Plan identified the need for an additional ice surface.

» Many similar sized communities have a twin arena.
» An additional ice sheet would address capacity and demand issues.

The 2018 Civic Facilities Development Strategy and Master Plan recommended:

» Planning for an expansion to the Multi-Plex to include additional indoor ice.
» Development of a larger library to support a larger and growing community.

In the development of this facility concept there have been meetings with the Recreation, Culture, and Parks Board; the Library Board; and the Dual Ice Development Society. Facility tours in Red Deer, Calgary, and Okotoks were conducted with the architect (ACI Architects), Town Council, and Town Administration.

The Town’s 10 Year Capital Plan includes construction for the ice sheet to start in 2021 and the library in 2024.The Town is proposing to expand the Multi-Plex arena. The project is proposed as two phases, with the rink being done in 2021 ($15 million budgeted), and the library in 2024 ($4 million budgeted).

See the draft renderings from ACI Architects that were showcased during the April 17 Open House.
