Canadian Motor Speedway investors continue to make significant progress in discussions with Ontario Provincial Ministries to clear final site plan conditions for Canada’s first world class oval speedway designed by racing legend Jeff Gordon. Additional unique features built into the design include a fully integrated road course, R&D innovation park and major entertainment complex.
The new office, located at 168 Garrison Road, with its distinctive auto racing theme and decor, will provide CMS management and staff with a primary meeting place to conduct Speedway business as well as to oversee the next phase of engineering and construction work targeted for mid 2015.
“The stone has been cast and the subsequent rippled effect will be felt throughout the community. This is a game changer for Fort Erie and all of Niagara,” stated Fort Erie Chamber of Commerce President Rick Phibbs.
The Chairman of The Council of The Regional Municipality of Niagara, Gary Burroughs said, “This is the first physical piece of a seven year drive for Canadian Motor Speedway and for all of us in the Niagara Region. It’s a huge step forward. It’s something we can identify saying yes, it’s going to happen. We will be participating as advocates at the Regional level for Fort Erie and for CMS “
Tom Kuchyt, Chief Administrative Officer, The Town of Fort Erie, is elated. “This means a bright future for the Town. This is something we’ve been waiting for, for a long time. We’ve been kicked around, but now the future looks very bright. The next few years are going to be great for us. It means tourism coming into the town, so I couldn’t be more excited!“
