By Frances Dorothy Ward

Obuasi Nov. 20, GNA – The Obuasi Municipal Assembly will soon begin the construction of a 1000-seater modern recreational centre to provide conducive atmosphere for social activities and events in the municipality.

Mr Elijah Adansi-Bonah, the Municipal Chief Executive, who announced this, said agreement had been reached with the local executive of the Garages Association to relocate artisan at the project site to a permanent place to pave the way for the construction of the community social centre to begin.

Addressing a town hall meeting at Obuasi, he said the place to accommodate the artisans was almost complete and they would soon be moved for the project to commence.

“We have agreement in place with the leadership of garages to relocate them with a month-long relation plan in place. Electricity, toilet facility and water have been provided”, he stated.

Mr Adansi-Bonah said the demarcations had been done and assured that the road linking the place would be graded to make movement of vehicles to the site easier.

He said the artisans’ new site situated at New Biakoyeden, would be a hub for business growth, collaboration, innovation and entrepreneurship within the automotive industry.

Mr Adansi-Bonah pointed out that the 800-1000 capacity recreational centre to be known as Obuasi Urban Park and located near the Len Clay Stadium, would have mini conference rooms, auditorium, washrooms, playground and other facilities.

It would provide a thriving hub of activities for the youth, families, senior citizens, civic organizations and social clubs in Obuasi and its environs.

He said the assembly would strengthen its revenue mobilization efforts to generate enough funds to executive its development projects and called on the people to support the assembly to achieve its mandate of bringing development to improve their living conditions.
