Prince Albert residents may soon be able to try their hand at crokicurl.

The city is reviewing a proposal from Main Street Events Inc. and the Prince Albert Downtown Business Improvement District to build a crokicurl rink at Memorial Square.

Jody Boulet, the community services director said construction is in the planning stages.

“We have a requirement now to sit down with the group (MSE Inc & PADBID) and go through the proposal in further detail and provide a report back to council,” Boulet said.

Boulet added there is still a significant funding request that must be completed for the operation to move forward.

“Once the appropriate resources are in place then we can provide a recommendation to council to proceed and enter into a maintenance agreement,” Boulet said.

The proposal states Main Street Events Inc. will be in charge of operations, snow removal, maintenance, staff scheduling and bookings but would need the city's support.

MSE Inc. is asking for the use of storage facilities, commissionaires; to set up and remove equipment daily, city staff for assembly of the rink, and space in Memorial Square.

The current proposal has the rink ideally opening in December of this year and closing early in March.
