The Halfmoon Bay Community Association recently received approval from its membership to donate $140,000 to the Sunshine Coast Regional District to be used for a replacement hall at Coopers Green Park in Halfmoon Bay.
Since selling their original hall in 2011, the Association has been lobbying the community for support to replace the existing aging and inadequate hall.
In September of this year, the Association and the SCRD signed a Memorandum of Understanding regarding the desire to work cooperatively towards the replacement of Coopers Green Hall.
The mandate of the Association is to promote social programs in support of the well-being of the community, so a new hall that overcomes some of the major deficiencies of the existing Coopers Green hall, such as lack of a food safe kitchen, limited size, poor acoustics, inadequate lighting, and heating is key to moving forward.
As Coopers Green is the last remaining community hall in Halfmoon Bay, the Association feels strongly that monies from their old hall should be used for a new hall that can be used by all in the community and support the programs and events that they desire.
With this announcement the way is now clear for the Association and the SCRD to work towards a replacement hall. The proposed hall will be part of a larger plan, Coopers Green Management plan that will include all aspects of the Park.
With an anticipated project cost of approximately $650,000 fund raising will begin early in the New Year with tax receipts issued by the SCRD for amounts over $100. Cash and cheque donations will be received by both the Halfmoon Bay Community Association and the SCRD. Credit card donations will also be accepted at the SCRD on Field Road.
In the meantime, the Halfmoon Bay Community Association would be pleased to accept your donation commitment by contacting Terry Karleen, President WBCA at 604-885-7452 or by email at email@example.com
