Community Centre Opening Delayed – again.

For those not on Councillor Nunziata’s email list, news has arrived that the opening of the long awaited community centre will be further delayed. The expensive Centre at Eglinton and Black Creek has been tantalizing passing drivers for months as it looks very close to completion.

The word is that the opening will occur sometime towards the end of this year or early next. The opening date has been pushed back several times already and this latest delay is another blow to those in the fortunate position of actually being able to access the facility (mainly drivers).

New Community Centre Moves Forward

Location of the new community centre.

A beautiful new community centre on the south-east corner of Black Creek Drive and Eglinton is another step closer to reality following approval to amend the Official Plan at today’s Etobicoke York Community Council meeting. The two-storey centre will house a swimming pool, gym, track, kitchen, meeting rooms and other facilities. Officially in Ward 12, the centre will be welcomed by Weston residents. Although 170 trees will have to be removed from the site to accommodate the building and infrastructure, more than a thousand replacements will be planted.
