Rob Announces Community Infrastructure Investment in Riverview



July 19, 2013 -- Riverview, NB -- The Honourable Rob Moore, Minister of State (Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency), today announced federal funding for the Coverdale Centre in the Town of Riverview.

"Our Government is pleased to announce its support for so many excellent projects such as this recreation facility that serves residents of Riverview and surrounding area," said Rob. "Families and communities across the province will benefit from these projects which leave a lasting legacy of modernized community facilities for future generations."

The project announced today involves the installation of air conditioning units and ventilation upgrades at the Coverdale Centre. The completed work will enhance the use of the facility for community events year-round.

Our Government is providing a contribution of $51,762 under the Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund toward this project, and the Town of Riverview is also investing $51,762.

"The Town of Riverview is grateful to ACOA for its support in making­­ upgrades to the Coverdale Centre," said Mayor Ann Seamans. "An efficient air conditioning system will especially benefit the many youth and senior groups that participate in year-round active recreation at the facility. With this investment, the Coverdale Centre will certainly be a more enjoyable community space for residents of Riverview and the outlying communities."

Our Government, through Economic Action Plan, announced support to help communities across the country modernize their infrastructure. Our Government committed $150 million over two years for the CIIF program which supports projects that look to improve existing community infrastructure, such as community centres, recreational buildings, local arenas, cultural and other community facilities.
