For 25 years the centre served the entire community with programs, activities, and events for all ages. It was where our community lived... and as we grew, it grew to keep up.
In 2003 the centre reached its peak-time capacity, by 2011 only 26% felt the facilities were adequate: 70% of seniors said they needed a place and only 30% thought the centre offered enough programs 77% of parents said youth needed a place and only 18% thought the centre offered enough programs 58% wanted a fitness centre 90% said the Library was important and 2/3 said it needed to expand. when programs resume in September the facility will support over 100 hours of activities each week... excluding sports.
With over 70% of people saying we arent doing enough, With a population more than doubled since the last building expansion, With a rapidly expanding senior and young family population With over 1,000 people at home almost every day... It is time to make the centre, once again, the place where community lives.
