TORONTO, Feb. 1 /CNW/ - TO2015 acknowledges receipt of the City of
Hamilton's proposal for a new Pan Am soccer stadium, today February 1,
2011. The proposal, which has been ratified by Hamilton's City Council,
now goes to TO2015's Board of Directors for review.
TO2015 is pleased the February 1 deadline spurred the City of Hamilton
and their funding partners to come to a proposed solution.
TO2015 extends its thanks and acknowledges the city officials in the
communities of Oshawa, Markham, Brampton and Mississauga for their
consideration of our soccer stadium contingency plan.
As made clear in our statement of January, 13, 2011, the proposal from
the City of Hamilton must also address and support the development of
high performance amateur sport and athletics.
Hamilton now has the opportunity to provide a vibrant community and
amateur sport legacy by putting the velodrome on the front burner. A
permanent velodrome has always been part of Pan Am's venue plan for
Hamilton and is an issue which still requires resolution. Our intent
has always been to provide this world-class facility as part of the
infrastructure revitalization plan for Hamilton.
Through our legacy of $700 million in community infrastructure, TO2015
hopes to transform the Greater Toronto Area and the Greater Golden
Horseshoe via a footprint that encompasses 17 municipalities, 43 venues
that includes five new builds and 22 refurbishments.
