Stowe Ice Rink hits a major setback

posted at 4:51 pm Mon Nov 13th, 2006 by (WherezIt_Staff)

A couple of weeks ago it was the town wanting more information on the rink’s business plan. Last Wednesday night the architects dropped another bombshell.

The group, which is working to replace the Stowe ice rink with, a new rink met with architects Wednesday night to receive the estimated cost to build the rink that was being designed. The group had been working with an objective of 4 million dollars. They expected the estimate to be little higher, since they knew they had asked for some additions, but were shocked when they were told that the cost would be approximately 12 million dollars. To get back down to budget it is going to take more than a little tweaking.

The Stowe ice rink group had hoped to start construction this summer, but now they are saying this will not happen. They are essentially back to square one on the design plans. The committee will be reevaluating all the previous options, and will be looking for new ones. They are confident that they will be able to find a solution, but it is going to take longer than expected.
