The town of Bancroft is one step closer to building the Earth Sciences Centre.

Last week, a special council meeting was held to receive the final draft report, and to hear information on what would be required.

Mayor Bernice Jenkins says, ultimately, an Earth Sciences Centre could be sustainable in Bancroft.

Jenkins explains the cost associated with building the 10,000 square-foot  building, which would include 4,000 square feet of outside information.

Jenkins says the Earth Sciences Centre would create more tourism in the area, and be an excellent place to learn.
