Renaming KRC to Leon's Centre Approved by City Council

As of July 1, 2018, the KRC will become the Leon's Centre.

City Council approved the Naming Rights Agreement at Tuesday night's Council meeting.

A vote of 11-0-2 moved the third crossing project forward another step, giving staff the authority to lead negotiations to acquire lands needed to build the bridge.

The city has set a deadline of 3:00 p.m. Wednesday, May 2, for interested contractors to submit bids to design and build the bridge over the Cataraqui River.

City council approved a city-wide bike-share program with Dropbike Inc., which will start July 1.

It follows the successfully pilot program that ran in the central part of the city last year.

Councillors also approved the illumination of City Hall and Market Square on May 11 for the Shine Green Campaign in recognition of Ontario Mental Health Awareness week.
