Province, federal government investing in Miramichi Cross Country Ski Club expansion
An expansion of the Miramichi Cross Country Ski Club has garnered a combined investment of $657,000 from the provincial and federal governments.
The project includes a new building for the club, incorporating a biathlon range into the trails, and improving existing trails so they're easier to groom.
The provincial government is investing $297,000 in the project while the federal government is contributing $360,000.
Club president Norm Brown says, "This project, when complete, will turn this facility into a centre of excellence for outdoor recreation within Northumberland County and beyond."
Brown also thanked the City of Miramichi for its ongoing support.
