Revised plaza at events centre aproved

Moncton city council has approved a revised public plaza at the new events centre.

The $4.3 million plaza is meant to attract people and encourage nearby residential development. So councillors approved an amendment to the contract with Bird Construction which is in charge of building the events centre. It will now also build the adjacant public plaza.

The $4.3 million cost is already included in the $104 million prize tag for the whole construction.
