Staff will be presenting the results of the open house at Monday’s council meeting, along with the option to extend the deadline.

The Chamber of Commerce is also preparing to send a letter to council, outlining their position on the arena. Like Tourism Whistler, the Chamber supports building a new NHL-sized rink for the benefit of the community, business and tourism. The Chamber also supports building an interactive tourist amenity on Lot 1/Lot 9 by maximizing external funding synergies. The amenity should serve as an Olympic legacy for Whistler.

Chamber interim President Bernie Lalor-Morton said: "We want to see the best use for Lot1/Lot 9 and what will drive the best business to this resort."
