ABOUT THE PROJECT
The City is working on plans for a community centre to be located at Highway 15 and Grenadier Drive in the City's east end.
Once completed, the community centre will be approximately 20,000 sq. ft. and could include a full-sized gymnasium and numerous meeting and program spaces. The design for the new community centre was completed with public consultation in 2018. Construction is set to begin in 2019 and completed in 2020.
Phase 1: Selection of east end community centre site
In September 2014, staff presented the community centre site options at a public meeting at the Gore Road Fire Hall. Public feedback was collected on location and the Highway 15 and Grenadier Drive site for the new community centre was approved by council in March of 2015.
Phase 2: Facility and program design
During the 2016 budget process, city council authorized staff to hire a designer and begin the process of developing proposed designs for the east-end community centre. The design for the new community centre was completed with public consultation in 2018.
Phase 3: Construction
- Early 2019 – Construction begins
