New Saltair Community Centre?

Why is the CVRD Board not being presented with comparisons?

1) New purpose built building that meets currents building codes, accessible to all, maybe even solar panels and can be a CVRD designated Emergency Shelter for Saltair residents in the event of an earthquake. The Saltair Community Society could help design the building to run their recreation programs in. A building that ALL Saltair residents could enter without health issues. $500,000?

2) Demolition of current building $350,000 +/-

3) Current Saltair Community Centre 67 year old building with hazardous materials and many building components that have exceeded their life span. $3M +/- depending on quotes.

$300,000 would go a long ways towards a new community centre. Why are they not looking at this option prior to allocating funds to replace the roof and some interior repairs?
