The Co-op Community Sport Court in Milestone is receiving $85,000, as it is one of the 13 projects getting a portion of $1 million from Co-op Community Spaces.
“We are excited to be a part of this project that will provide the community of Milestone with an excellent outdoor recreation space.” said Kevin Arthur, General Manager of Prairie Sky Coop. “Community is one of our core values as a company and is very important to us that we are able to invest in the communities in which we operate.”
Through Co-op Community Spaces, Co-op has provided $11.5 million to 160 projects since 2015. The projects include recreation, environmental conservation, and urban agriculture.
“On behalf of the planning committee for our Sport Court in Milestone, we would like to thank the Prairie Sky Co-op for their generous support of our project,” said Leanne Sjodin, Milestone Community Sport Court Board Member. “With this funding, we are committed to breaking ground this summer and anticipate the space will be 80 percent complete before winter. The new Co-op Community Sport Court will be a welcome addition to our Town, and offer fitness opportunities for people of all ages.”
