The Municipality of Central Elgin received $425,000 as part of the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s Community Building Fund to add an accessible elevator, dehumidifier, and evaporative condenser to the Belmont Community Centre and Arena. The Municipality has retained the services of Spriet Associates Limited who were responsible for the original building design and 2004 arena addition to design and administer the contract for a new accessible elevator which will meet the new AODA (Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act) standards to fully comply with the latest Ontario Building Code. Tonda Construction has been retained as the Constructor and approved by Council to complete the construction of the new elevator anticipated to be completed July 2023.

At the completion of the project, the Belmont Community Centre Hall will be full accessible as is required by 2025 for AODA compliance.

Due to the construction and safety of the public, the Community Centre Hall will be closed throughout the duration of the project and is anticipated to be completed by July 2023. No disruptions are anticipated within the arena and the work area will remain consolidated to the northwest corner of the building.

    Tonda has substantially completed the elevator and the project is now within the testing and compliance phase of the project. TSSA (Technical Standards and Safety Authority) has completed an initial review and testing now moves to the Life Safety Systems. Arena wide safety systems will be tested for compliance including the: fire alarm system, sprinkler system, elevator and HVAC fan shut down. Additional inspections are required of the Electrical Safety Authority (ESA) and all testing is anticipated to be completed July 2023 with the hall reopening as soon as building occupancy has been approved.

    Thank you for your continued patience in completing this project.
