Meeting Agenda - October 24, 2005

STAFF REPORTS

Sunset Community Centre Contract Award
The Board approved the construction contract award for the Sunset Community Centre to Haebler Construction Ltd., in the amount of up to $9.562 million. The existing centre, built in 1950 and one of the City's oldest, will be completely replaced and moved to Main Street. Since the design was approved a year ago, costs have increased significantly. Since that time, staff and consultants have looked for a solution that reduces the construction costs and realizes a slightly modified design. These include revisions to the detailing and finishing of the project and a small reduction in floor space. Even with these changes, additional funding needs to be found. Monies from a number of sources will be used including a large contribution from the Sunset Community Association, government grant, and transfers from other Park Board accounts. The new facility, which is being built to LEED Gold Standard, is scheduled to open in April or May, 2007.

NEXT MEETING

The next regular meeting of the Park Board is at 7:00 pm on Monday, October 31st at 2099 Beach Avenue.
