Facilities will remain open with minor operational interruptions such as temporary entrance closures, and HVAC limitations.  This work supports the City’s commitment to providing energy and cost savings while significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Temporary construction zones will be set up in and around the community centre.
