An insistence by the Town of Harbour Grace that a proposed new arena for the region be built along Jamie's Way was being described by one Carbonear municipal leader last week as a "crippler" in attempts to form an equal partnership on the project.
But Harbour Grace Mayor Don Coombs is defending his council's decision,saying Jamie's Way is the preferred site because it offers easy access to water and sewer services, is ideally located next to Veterans Memorial Highway, has plenty of available land for a building and ample parking, and is strategically situated for those who would be using the regional facility.
