The Complex is owned by a Not for Profit Company, Aberdeen and District Charities Inc. The increasing financial demands of operating the ARC along with the large cost of the existing mortgage has made it unreasonable and financially unsound to continue this current business model. The ADCI Board has worked tirelessly for months to find viable options to turn the current financial situation of the ARC around to a more sustainable way so that the ARC will be around for the community to enjoy and use for many years to come.
To ensure that the new owner of the ARC is the proper fit to the community the Town of Aberdeen has made conditions of the sale that would restrict zoning to ensure that no industrial businesses could operate on the ARC property. The ADCI Board wants to ensure that no negative situations will impact school or the sports grounds around the ARC.
Financial information is available upon request.
The complex is heated by a natural gas boiler system. Which replaced the original Geothermal system in 2017, The geothermal system is still in place, but would require an inspection and restoration of certain aspects. The Ice is created and maintained via 6 Frontier Ice Kube Systems run by Delta Systems Computer Program. These systems are original to the date of construction and are well maintained. Last 2 years of service records available upon request. Units were last in operation March 31st, 2021 (last day of ice for 2020/2021 season).
