A proposal to revamp, expand and enclose the Skatium in Waitsfield was unveiled to the Mad River Valley Chamber of Commerce this spring.
The plan, prepared by Sellers and Company in Warren and Anna Urban,
details expanding and enclosing the current outdoor arena to create a
year-round facility offering hockey, figure and free skating, as well as
concerts, markets, curling, broomball, etc.
The drawings show an outdoor rink as well as a covered building approximately two times the size of the current facility.
Included in the drawings are a floor plan sketch that shows a two-story building with locker rooms, a first aid/training room, a coach's office, ticket counter, and equipment storage facilities.
No zoning application for the proposed project has been filed to date.
