Renderings of the new clubhouse and banquet hall to be built at Ledgeview Golf Course have been released as the city seeks a builder.

Clubhouse construction to start soon at Ledgeview

City of Abbotsford discussing funds with Kinder Morgan

Construction on the new clubhouse at the city-owned Ledgeview Golf Club is expected to begin this month, but more than $1 million that would be used for the project remains in the hands of pipeline company Kinder Morgan.

Contracts to build the new $5.6 million facility were awarded at Monday’s council meeting, and work is tentatively set to begin this month, engineering general manager Peter Sparanese told council.

Funds for the project will come from a range of sources. Insurance that covered the previous fire-razed building will amount to $1.5 million, the city will kick in $950,000, Ledgeview Golf and Country Club Society will raise $270,000 and another $175,000 will come from the sale of a property elsewhere in the city. But $2.78 million will come from Kinder Morgan, whose pipeline runs through Ledgeview.

A little more than half of the money is compensation for the use of right of ways through the golf course and other city property. Another $1.3 million is from a community amenity contribution from Kinder Morgan. That latter figure was agreed upon more than two years ago, but it’s also dependent on the company deciding that it’s done all its due diligence and received all necessary approvals to twin its pipeline.

That project has encountered resistance from local governments and activists, and construction timelines have been repeatedly pushed back.

A city spokesperson said the city is “currently working with Kinder Morgan on the timing of the release of the funds,” but said it’s not known whether construction will begin before the city receives the money.
