FAQs About the Ponoka Civic Centre
The Town of Ponoka has signed a lease agreement for up to 28,000 square feet of floor space in a new three-storey civic building that was constructed by a developer, Landrex Inc. The building was constructed on the old hospital site at the north end of Downtown Ponoka on 50 Street.
Demolition of the old hospital building and construction of the new Ponoka Civic Centre began in 2017. Construction of the new building was completed in Fall 2018.
To help keep the public informed of the details around this project, we compiled the following FAQ sheet with answers to Frequently Asked Questions.
