Work continues to secure funds for Lacombe Athletic Park

City, Association working on securing the funding necessary to allow the project to proceed

After Council’s recent decision to delay their decision to contribute funds to the MEGlobal Athletic Park project until after the Lacombe Athletic Park Association (L.A.P.A.) receives a response from their grant applications, the City of Lacombe is back to work with the Association on securing the funding necessary to allow the project to proceed.

“We are supporting L.A.P.A. by assisting them with two grant applications to the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program and the Community Facility Enhancement Program,” said Director of Community Services Deborah Juch. “We also hope to help them complete a well-researched needs assessment and cost-benefit analysis to highlight the community development aspects of this world- class sports facility.”

The City continues to support L.A.P.A. and the MEGlobal Athletic Park through a $50,000 per year operational grant, along with municipal staff support for parks maintenance.
