City to  renovate old fair building

The City of Sherbrooke is seeking government help to fully convert one of the only remaining vestiges of its fair grounds into a multipurpose sports facility. At the moment about 66 per cent of the Expo-Sherbrooke building, located in the Sylvie Daigle Park in Fleurimont, is used by the SherGym gymnastic club, while the rest is used as storage by the municipal government. “The executive committee asked us to examine two possible scenarios; renovation or the construction of a new building,” explained Jean Lussier, Division Chief for buildings with the city, following a presentation of the plan for the city council on Monday evening. “The scenario we’ve recommended is that of renovation; the objective was to reuse that building.” See full story in the Wednesday, Feb. 7th edition of The Record.
