The five potential sites were submitted by the Multiplex Task Force after gathering input from residents.

The task force was formed in the wake of public outcry over the city’s initial proposed site at Conestoga College.

Cambridge City Council will look over the locations at its meeting on Monday.

A decision on a location is not expected to be made until January.

Mayor Doug Craig says the more central locations on Pinebush Road and Hespeler Road are good options, but he cautioned, they come with a major draw back, “The trade-off is that we have a budget and within that budget were not going to be able to afford it, because we are going to have either purchase the land or do site clearance and you are going to have less components in the recreational centre when its finished.”

Craig went on to say that they are looking at an additional $10 to $20 million in additional costs for a central location.
