Thank you for your support!

Thank you to all those who turned out for the WEAR BLUE event at City Hall on Monday May 13.  We had a good show of support for the new Councillors who haven’t felt any pressure to approve the 50 metre pool, other than emails and letters from you, our supporters.  We know it is disappointing that no decision was made to go forward with the project.  This gives us more time to work with the new Council to get a favourable decision on the 50 metre pool, rather than have them make a decision based purely on the cost. 

The North Shore Aquatics Society has been told that we will be involved in developing the Community Recreation Strategy; at this point we do not know what our involvement will be.  We will keep you posted.

Thank you once again for your continuing support!

City of North Vancouver orders more study of recreation centre replacement

A replacement to an aging recreation centre in North Vancouver is on hold while the city develops a community-wide plan for its recreation facilities. 

The new Harry Jerome Community Recreation Centre was approved by council in July 2018 at a cost of $237 million, financed in part through the sale and development of adjacent lands. 

But on Monday, a new council received a staff report confirming all contracts for the facility on hold.
