YCE Multi-Plex Centre Preferred Concept. On advice from provincial grant representatives, Council has approved the submission of the cost-effective concept design for the grant application to the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program without the gymnasium program area. Although the gymnasium space will not be a part of the grant application, Council has directed that it still be a part of the final design and tendering process. This will allow flexibility once the tender process is started if final costs become prohibitive.
