Lacombe City council approved an extension of the land abeyance agreement at their regular meeting earlier this week.

The year long extension will allow the C4 initiative committee to to accommodate their current plan, which now includes aninitial building design concept and a business plan.

The proposed C4 will be a multi-use facility for the community to celebrate the arts, support families, children and enhancethe general well being of Lacombe and surrounding area residents. It will house a large childcare facility, the Parent LinkCentre and a performing arts venue.

The City and Wolf Creek Public Schools (WCPS) are temporarily holding in place the designated land east of City Hall, near theParkland Regional Library. The agreement expires this fall, which would then release the land from the abeyance agreement.

On behalf of C4, Susan MacDonald, Bev Randell and Richard Schick also presented council with the business and fundingmodel for the facility. Schick said the C4 will be a multi-purpose space that will serve the community in many ways, beyondjust the arts.

The daycare portion will include seven daycare rooms. The visual arts section willinclude a studio along with a kiln. The current estimated cost of the facility is $31 million.

The group estimates construction will be begin on the facility in 2020 or 2022.
