DECEMBER 30, 2019

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Regional Multiplex transitions to Greenview  

 Operations at the Greenview Regional Multiplex will now be administered by the MD of Greenview with the ratification of an agreement between the Town of Valleyview and Greenview.

Under the agreement, Greenview will assume management of the regional recreation and cultural facility located in Valleyview, allowing the Town of Valleyview to continue to focus resources and efforts within the community. Current Multiplex staff will become Greenview employees.

“The amalgamation of the Regional Multiplex into the operations of the Greenview is another example of the positive outcomes that can be achieved when municipalities work together,” said Reeve Dale Smith with the MD of Greenview. “This collaboration has helped to strengthen the significant relationship we have with the Town of Valleyview and helps to ensure that this state of the art facility continues to serve residents across the region.”

“Once again, the MD of Greenview and the Town of Valleyview serve as a shining example demonstrating how municipalities can collaborate together to offer services and facilities that make our region better for all residents,” said Vern Lymburner, Mayor of Valleyview.  “We wish the MD great success as they venture into this new endeavour and are excited that with existing staff remaining, all patrons and visitors will continue to receive the amazing service and programming available at the Multiplex.”

Developed as a joint initiative of the MD of Greenview and the Town of Valleyview, the $36 million facility opened in February 2018 and provides a full range of recreation and fitness activities and programs as well space for community and cultural events.
