Please join Colin Steen, President of OMGHA, and Chuck Stifter, City of Maple Grove Parks and Recreation Director, for a discussion on the planned renovation and expansion plan for the MG Community Center.
This November there will be a question on the City election ballot to approve a half cent cent sales tax increase for the next 20 years that will fund this initiative. Improved aquatic facilities, renovated meeting and banquet rooms, updated rink locker rooms and a third sheet of ice are all being planned if the ballot question passes.
Learn more about the proposed plans in a meeting hosted by OMGHA and the City on August 8th at 8pm via zoom. A zoom link will follow in the coming weeks.
This is a fantastic opportunity for the City of Maple Grove to improve a key facility for our hockey association. A third sheet of ice will greatly improve access to ice time for players of all ages and levels throughout our association. Your support of the ballot question and participation in this call is greatly appreciated!
