BrandonU’s Downtown project hinges on next president’s “vision”

May 1, 2018

Outgoing Brandon University Student Union President Nick Brown told the Brandon Sun that the university’s proposed project for a mixed-use downtown facility depends on BrandonU’s next president. “Once the new president of the university comes in, it’ll be their vision, and if they are strong-willed towards completing the downtown project, it will get done and the money will come in for that,” Brown said. “But if the person who comes in is not interested in that project, it will die right here.” According to the Sun, early plans for the project included a child-care centre, black-box theatre, and retail space, but project consultants advised BrandonU’s Board of Governors to re-evaluate the project’s scope. Brandon Sun
