Passed    Motion To: WHEREAS construction of the Richcraft Recreation Complex - Kanata (RRCK) was completed in 2013 at a cost of $42.38; and WHEREAS construction of this Complex was completed at a substantially lower cost than the budgeted $43.47M; and WHEREAS the Council-approved financing plan for the facility, included a $1.18M community contribution for capital facility enhancements and an additional $820K to create an endowment fund to offset the associated annual operating and maintenance costs anticipated for the operation of the additional two pool lanes to be funded by the community; and WHEREAS at that time an agreement was being negotiated to have the facility operated by the NCR-Y and the endowment fund to cover additional pool costs was considered needed to ensure the addition of the pool lanes would not become an additional operational cost to the City in the agreement with the NCR-Y; and WHEREAS the proposed agreement with the Y was unable to be finalized so the facility is operated by the City and pool operations, with the addition of the two extra lanes, has not resulted in operating costs higher than pool operating expenditures, showing the benefit not only in programming but also in operational costs; and WHEREAS the community has successfully raised and contributed to the City funds for both the capital cost of the two extra lanes and providing equipment for the youth room; fully satisfying their capital contribution commitment to those projects; and WHEREAS the balance in fundraising proceeds remains in a trust fund which the community, at the request of the manager at the RRCK, is using for additional priority capital enhancements, starting with beach volley ball courts at the RRCK; and WHEREAS in the first four years of operation of the Complex, the City-provided budget for operations, programming and maintenance has been sufficient to meet all operating expenditures; and THEREFORE BE IT resolved that Council approve the removal of the community endowment fund requirement from the financing plan for the facility as well as the limitations on fundraising costs; and BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT the Community funds currently held in trust be made available to invest in priority capital enhancements for the site, including an outdoor fitness park, beach volleyball pits and a sponsor recognition board; and BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT all obligations under the original Council approved funding program agreement with the Kanata North Recreation Centre Inc. are now considered fulfilled.
