It is early days yet but Belleville council will be discussing getting involved in a partnership that would see a high quality outdoor ice
surface built in the city.
At its meeting Monday, council will see a report outlining plans that would have the Belleville Senators, the Senators Foundation, the Belleville Rotary Club, and the city get together to build a “Sens Rink”.
The outdoor rink would have permanent boards and be maintained year round and used for basketball, ball hockey, and other sports during the warmer seasons.
This year alone the Senators Foundation has donated $2 million to charitable and recreational projects in the Ottawa region.
The Belleville Rotary Club is interested in taking on local fundraising efforts for the rink and city council is being asked to approve a feasibility
study looking at location and costs.
