The Cranna Community Cultural Centre (C4) co-coordinating committee has selected a consulting team to complete a preliminary design and business plan for the proposed multi-purpose Cranna Community Cultural Centre.

With the support of the City of Lacombe and the Lacombe Performing Arts Centre Foundation, the C4 Committee has engaged the services of Schick, Shiner and Associates of Shawnigan Lake, B.C., a theatre design-consulting firm, who will conduct preliminary design work.

“We are excited to embark on the next stage of the planning process for the C4 initiative,” said Lacombe FCSS Executive Director Susan MacDonald.

“The C4 partners look forward to further conversations with the community and sharing the design possibilities as well as the benefits of such a unique community centre.”

Over the course of the next three to four months, the consultants will interview stakeholders to update community needs information, review existing building plans, and develop a preliminary design for the entire civic building.

“We are looking forward to working with the community on this project,” said Schick, Shiner and Associates Principal Richard Schick. “Combining the performance arts and space for children and families within one facility will be unique in Canada and the synergies created will benefit both operations and the community at large.”

The proposed Centre will house a childcare facility, a Parent Link Centre and a performing arts venue. It will be of bold design, and will inspire and enhance the cultural and community life of Lacombe and surrounding communities.

A parcel of land has been designated for this facility, located between City Hall and the Parkland Regional Library. The location provides access to schools and existing athletics and recreational facilities.

The proposed plans will be made public later this spring.

C4 is a partnership made up of the Lacombe Performing Arts Centre Foundation, Lacombe Day Care, Lacombe FCSS and the City.

Studio facilities will be available for instruction and practice. The facility will provide opportunities for people of all ages to explore their creative side.
