The development and financial plans for the Russell Recreation Complex have been approved and a detailed design will follow. During the regular meeting in April, Russell Township Council reviewed and approved the layout and financial plans, advancing the project into the detailed design phase. It will include detailed drawings of the structure, facade, landscaping, lighting, heating, air conditioning and other elements. The recreation complex is expected to include an indoor swimming pool, three hockey arenas, a community hall, a gymnasium and a bowling alley. Updates will be reviewed by the Board on a regular basis. Currently, construction is expected to begin in the fall of 2023.
