The City of Cold Lake is welcoming a number of projects in the new year. A draft for the 2015 budget indicates funding that has been allocated for a number of future projects. In 2015, the new south fire hall will be constructed, and the skate park and splash park will also be completed. City of Cold Lake Mayor, Craig Copeland, says quality of life is council’s number one priority. Mayor Copeland adds, other large scale projects include design for a gymnastics building, as well as the second arena at the Energy Centre, and the installation of an outside artificial turf football/soccer field at Imperial Park.
