St. Andrew's Community Centre Renewal

The municipality is planning to build a new community centre at the current St. Andrew's Community Centre site in Halifax West.

Update:
Based on feedback received during key stakeholder engagements and public consultations in late October and early November, it has been determined that additional time for planning will be required to implement next steps. Specific timing for initiation of the design phase will be confirmed following Council’s deliberation and approval of the Capital Budget in March 2017. Updates will be provided as soon as the decision of Council has been made.

We recognize the disruption that a closure will cause and this change in schedule will assist in reducing the impact of the project on current users of the facility. Once we have confirmation on the adjusted schedule, details will be shared with employees, patrons and general public.

We continue to explore options that will provide access to programming and rental groups for as long as possible at the existing site. Since facility design is a key factor affecting our capacity to extend access to the site, we want to ensure appropriate time is taken to identify challenges and develop solutions – including securing alternative locations for clients when the project requires.
