The Town of Peace River initiated the redevelopment of the Baytex Energy Centre in 2012 With the development of a Rehabilitation Committee. This regional committee included membership from the County of Northern Lights and Northern Sunrise County, public, industry, business and the hockey community.  The committee developed a Multiplex Concept that was adopted by the Town in July of 2013.  During the reassessment of the Arena after securing the services of the Architectural firm of BR2, to begin the detailed design work of a second rink and a connecting hub to the Peace Regional Pool, serious structural identified in the old arena.  Therefore, the Town had to make a choice to change the scope of the project to build a new arena, as it was not feasible to repair or rehabilitate the old facility. The engineering assessment of the old facility gave it a life expectancy of no more than five years.
