A report is surfacing that at the public meeting of the Merritt Community Theater Society an appeal to local business to come up with three hundred thousand dollars to complete the option of the Coutlee street property for the proposed theater was presented. There was also information given that a Quilchena street property now being operated as a recycling yard would be needed to fulfill the off street parking requirements.

The option to purchase has a deadline for December 17th

Off street parking needs to be within 1000 feet of a development and is regulated by bylaw.
