The Mayor of Portage says a recreation complex feasibility study now underway in the local area is happening because local residents want it to happen.

Ian MacKenzie says council has heard for for some that certain new recreational facilities are needed, and says recent research studies have shown the demand is there.

Mackenzie says a strong turn-out in favour of a new rec complex at a recent public meeting confirms that support, and he hopes individual surveys recently delivered to all area residents will continue to follow that trend.

Those are due back at City Hall early next month.
