Habitat board chairman predicts ‘solid business plan’ within the next year

“Very positive” is how the chairman of the Cochrane Polar Bear Habitat board characterizes the facility’s reprieve.

On Tuesday, town council voted 6-1 in favour of financing the Habitat for one more year,while working with the board towards financial sustainability.

Board chairman J.P. Bradette says it’s a viable path forward, and a year is enough to show at least meaningful progress.

“We’re not going to have everything accomplished at the end of 2020, but we’ll have I think a very solid business plan,” he remarks. “Not only a plan in place, but we’ll be in the middle of implementing that plan and demonstrating that we can set the Habitat on a long term sustainable path.”

Bradette is not ready, though, to say that at the end of that year, the town will be able to divest itself of the facility and turn it over to his board to operate.

“Too early to tell,” he cautions, “but we are certainly going to work diligently with the town over the course of the next year to see how close we can get to achieving that.”
