CLUBHOUSE UPDATE JUN 12/17

Significant and exciting progress has been made since the last update. Our meeting with Mayor Linda Hepner definitely helped assist the Parks Recreation and Culture department put more emphasis on our project. Thank you Ian Stagg. As a result of that meeting, the Park and Recreation Department dedicated a staff member to be the Project Manager until project completion. When this staff member was identified, emphasis for Bayside changed from political consultation and negotiations to the identification and securing of In-Kind contributors.

Our goal was to achieve approximately $300,000.00 of In-Kind contributions to meet our financial commitment of $600,000.00 towards the construction of the lower level (Changing rooms, washrooms, referee room, first Aid room, and storage) and the shell of the upper floor. The finishing of the upper floor (washrooms and clubhouse facilities) will be designed and completed by Bayside Athletic Association.

Through significant effort of members of the Bayside Athletic Association Executive, over the last 3months, we were able to garner approximately $450,000.00 of In-Kind contributions, surpassing our goal of $300,000.00.

Achieving our goal would not have been possible without the significant contributions and assistance from the following companies:

• Arc & Spark Electrical
• Eagle West Cranes
• Gallagher Brothers Contractors
• Gisborne Group
• KCS Heating
• Kerrian Metalhouse
• Lehigh Hanson Canada
• Rempel Brothers Concrete
• Lehigh Hansen
• North Coast Building Supply
• North Stone Excavating
• Prestige Contracting
• RnB Masonry
• Sungod Doors
• Westform Metals

We continue to solicit In-Kind contributions to assist us with the finishing of the clubroom. We are currently looking for assistance with plumbing, forming, and masonry labour and/or materials. If you are able to assist or know of someone who can, please contact Jeremy Bergmann at jeremybergmann8@gmail.com.

Surrey City Council is reviewing our project at a Council Meeting tonight, June 12/2017, to approve our project. Following approval you will see a public notification in the local paper promoting our community project. Following a brief tendering process we hope to start construction in August 2017.

Thank you for your support as we continue our drive and persistence to achieve the goal of a great community building. I encourage all to get on board as we continue in our community development and building of a great Bayside legacy.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at StephenBlack60@gmail.com
