The sod has finally been turned on Pasadena’s new health and wellness centre.

Premier Tom Marshall and Pasadena Mayor Otto Goulding were on hand to break ground during a ceremony near the site of the proposed facility on Tenth Avenue.

Funding for the project was announced by former Premier Kathy Dunderdale two years ago. The project was not without its detractors however, as several town councillors recently voted against the project due to cost overruns from original estimates.

The $9.3-million project will be cost-shared between the provincial government and the town, with the government paying $6.2 million and the town the remaining $3.1 million.

Slated to open in 2015, the facility will include three wings and 2,000 square metres of space, which will include a gymnasium, walking track and three multi-purpose rooms.

    Tom is doing a lot but is it all for the good or is he just trying to get his name on a lot of things as premier prior to leaving? Seems that way to me...

    Good luck with that Major Goulding. The Progressive Conservatives under Danny Williams broke ground for our new proposed hospital in Corner Brook however years later their is still no construction. Now we have Premier Tom Marshall breaking ground. Makes you wonder what all these promises are all about. Must be an election around the corner...
