Ilderton Indoor Recreation Facility Study - Public Input Session #2

Media Release (Tuesday, May 16th, 2017) - Predators Look to Make Home Ice in Middlesex Centre

Full PDF Media Release

Municipal staff from Middlesex Centre and representatives of the Lambton Shores Junior B Predators are currently discussing a possible team move to the Middlesex Centre Wellness and Recreation Complex in Komoka.

The municipality had initially been contacted by three Junior Hockey Clubs, all sanctioned by the Ontario Hockey Association (OHA), looking to call the Komoka facility their new home. 

Scott Mairs, Director of Community Services, says interest in the Wellness & Recreation Complex was significant and the municipality began the process of considering best options by connecting with the Ontario Hockey Association to ensure any moves would meet their approval. Each Club applied to the OHA and all were initially given approval by the OHA to potentially move. Municipal staff then met with the interested organizations to determine the best fit for Middlesex Centre, team owners, players and fans. Mairs says, “The decision was made to continue talks with the Predators and we are now working through drafts and details of a long term lease.”

President, owner and general manager of the Predators, Roop Chanderdat, believes a move to the Middlesex Centre Wellness & Recreation Complex will be positive for his organization. “We selected this rink since it’s a modern facility with all the amenities required for Junior Hockey plus it’s in a great location (e.g. close to UWO, Fanshawe College, main Highway, etc.) with a growing population base. In addition this facility is also home to the Elgin Middlesex Chiefs AAA Hockey which is a good fit for our Jr. B team to continue to develop local hockey talent that have graduated from their successful program. Plus we have had good dealings in the past with Middlesex Centre during our spring camps and they are very professional.”


Final approval with regard to any agreement between the Predators and Middlesex Centre will be made by Middlesex Centre Council at its June 21st meeting.

County of Middlesex Roadside Weed Spraying Notice:



 


‘NO SKATING,’ ‘NO FISHING,’ ‘NO SWIMMING’ signs posted at the Municipality’s stormwater management ponds



The Municipality of Middlesex Centre has signs posted at its stormwater management ponds (commonly referred to as ‘storm ponds’ or ‘drainage ponds’) advising that leisure activities are not permitted. This is due to the inherent safety risks that surround ice skating in the winter and swimming in the summer.

Since such engineered ponds were constructed, signs have been posted at the following stormwater ponds:
• Meadowcreek Park in Ilderton near Willow Ridge Road
• Optimist Park in Ilderton near Meredith Drive
• Jefferies Road
• Caverhill Park in Komoka
• Union Avenue in Komoka

Water entering stormwater management facilities is untreated stormwater runoff that typically drains over a variety of surfaces including roads, driveways and parking lots, through a series of pipes and into the ponds. The water entering the ponds is untreated, and therefore, the suitability of the ice for skating and the suitability of the water for swimming is not known and is not monitored. Stormwater management ponds are not supervised and the Municipality cannot take any responsibility for the safety of persons who attempt to use these ponds for leisure activities. Therefore, the Municipality has taken the step of posting signs at the ponds to prohibit public use of the stormwater management ponds for leisure activities.

Facts about Stormwater Management Ponds

Stormwater Management Ponds are essentially construction facilities that are part of the Municipality’s
overall stormwater infrastructure system. These ponds receive rainwater and runoff from the
surrounding neighbourhood including streets, driveways and parking lots. Dirt, debris and waste settle to
the bottom of the pond, while water flows out to the receiving water body. Removal of dirt and debris is
usually completed every 10-15 years, allowing the pond to return to its designed water volume
capacity. Urban runoff is also subject to oils, road salt and other chemicals—plants in the pond area help
to improve the water quality of stormwater runoff.

Infrastructure, please contact Paul Zuberbuhler at 519-666-0190 x 255
