THE VOICE POLL: Should decision on old Arena fate be delayed?

 

With the new community centre and its many facilities set to open this June, the current Pelham Arena on Haist Street will become surplus to needs.

The Town has aggressively pushed forward with a development plan that would see mixed residential construction on the site. Various options, differing in little more than type of housing and density, have been presented during public “consultation” sessions. Apparently not on the table is the option to re-purpose the old arena for new uses, or to tear it down and develop the space as a larger park.

What do you think?

This poll has closed.  The results appear below.

Should the Town of Pelham proceed on its current course to sell the existing arena to real estate developers? Or should it postpone a final decision until after the municipal election in October, when a new council may choose a different path?
