Mill Courtland Community Centre Expansion

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Mill Courtland Community Centre (MCCC), located at 216 Mill Street, is undergoing a redesign and development process. This is necessary because the building size and overall footprint are not large enough to accommodate current and expected demand for services and programs. Aging spaces and infrastructure in the existing building also need to be updated.

There are three phases to this project:

  • Phase 1: Business case
  • Phase 2: Detailed design
  • Phase 3: Construction

When staff plan to build or substantially expand an existing community centre, a comprehensive business case is completed. This is phase 1 of the project. The intent of the business case is to first understand the community’s needs and priorities for the centre’s indoor and outdoor spaces. This includes both consulting residents and analyzing usage data, demographics, and trends to get a full picture of what should be considered.

The business case is now complete. To learn more, read About Phase 1

Once the business case is approved, a detailed design must be created. It is often the case that not all elements can be included in a facility build or expansion. Technical limitations, available budget, and the size and configuration of the lot all limit what can be done. In phase 2, we identify critical and priority elements from the business case that fit within the allotted construction budget. This process will be led by a project team including City staff and Neighbourhood Association members.

Once the detailed design is ready, we can then move into Phase 3, the construction phase. This is when the expansion to the community centre will be built.
