Share your thoughts about the White Bear Sports Center

The City of WBL is considering partnering with the Hockey Association to make the necessary upgrades to the White Bear Sports Center (WBSC). It will cost approximately $4M to upgrade the current facility for continued use. A second sheet of ice would cost $10-12M. Additional financial partners would be needed to make this happen. Other amenities would further increase the cost.

Friends of White Bear Sports Center has formed to communicate updates and decisions regarding the future of the White Bear Lake Sports Center, and to take next steps in community outreach and fundraising to support a new rink. Here are a few ways to get involved:

**Kickoff Meeting**
Monday, May 15, 6:00 p.m.
White Bear Sports Center | 1328 Highway 96, WBL

Join us to discuss what happening with the WBSC, and what we can do to help.

**White Bear Sports Center Community Survey**
We are seeking input about the WBSC from members of the White Bear Lake community, as well as the various user groups, both past and present. Please complete the White Bear Sports Center Community Survey by Friday, May 19 to share your feedback on how you use the facility and what you think should be done with it in the future. A report will be shared with the City Council later this spring.

**Contact your City Council Member**
If you live in the City of White Bear Lake, let your council member know what you think should be done with the White Bear Sports Center.
