November 18, 2022 – Government of Canada: Today, Heath MacDonald, Member of Parliament for Malpeque; the Premier Dennis King and Rowan Caseley, Mayor of the Town of Kensington, announced $4.2 million in joint funding for two infrastructure projects in Kensington.
With this funding, Islanders will benefit from several upgrades to Kensington’s Credit Union Centre (CUC), which include installing a 100kw solar panel system, replacing the ice plant, installing new LED lights over the ice surface, and resurfacing the parking lot. These upgrades will ensure the CUC operates more efficiently, providing Kensington and surrounding communities with a safer, greener, more comfortable facility for sports and activities.
In addition, the water and sewer systems along Broadway Street South in Kensington will be extended, completing loops in the system and connecting to other major roads. The project will increase efficiency and improve water quality by reducing the amount of stagnant water.
Supplemental infrastructure such as fire hydrants will also be added, and several residential and commercial buildings will be serviced, reducing the number of wells within the Town and lowering stress on the groundwater table and potential contamination points.
