Plan Calls For New Arena To Replace Downtown Mall
Chatham’s downtown core is going to get a major facelift if the owners of the Downtown Chatham Centre have anything to say about it. The group has proposed a new 4000 seat arena and sports hall of fame, among other items, to replace the current location of the “mall.”
The new facility will also feature an area for a library, new civic centre, shopping, and eventually more housing, or an addition to the Retro Suites.
The proposal, which will be presented by the current owners of the space, will be presented to council Monday.
