Cedar hall back on firm footing

The Cedar Community Hall has a new floor thanks to an agreement between the RDN and Cedar Community Association

The Cedar Community Hall now has a brand new Eastern Oak floor.

The Regional District of Nanaimo and the Cedar Community Association have established an agreement whereby the RDN, in providing the association with funding for hall improvements, will receive substantially reduced rental rates for five years.

This will help the association to make improvements to the hall and increase its usage, while providing the RDN with an affordable location in which to offer Area A recreation and culture programs.

The RDN has provided a total of $48,000 from its Area A Community Parks budget, which can also be accessed to assist local non-profit organizations with improvements to community recreation facilities.

The Association received $27,000 in 2011 for the new floor, and will receive $21,000 in 2012 to be used for exterior painting and for new accordion-style doors in the facility.
