An On Line petition now with close to 400 names, is circulating for those that appose turning the Jean Marc Lalonde Arena into a parking garage for municipal vehicles. Councilor Jean Marc Lalonde himself apposed the idea. A public meeting will be held Tuesday May 8 at 7:00pm to discuss the future of the arena.
Many Jewel 92.5 listeners expressed their concerns in a re-purposing the arena, as Rockland would lose it’s community center, while others suggested many ideas on transforming the arena, at least parts of it, into a venue for children’s activities, curling, and a youth center to name a few.
