The Northeast Oshawa Neighborhood Heart, Library and Senior Heart may also want your contribution
To keep up with the massive expansion in Oshawa north of Taunton Road, a new future multipurpose community center will soon be built there.
The center, which will include new branches of the Oshawa Public Library, the Oshawa Senior Community Centers 55+ (OSCC55+) and other future needs, will be built on the northeast corner of Thornton Road North and the future Britannia Avenue West extension.
The additional features that will be part of the community center will be part of the community consultations in addition to the City Council discussions.
“I am very excited to be collaborating with OSCC55+ and Oshawa Public Libraries on this future multipurpose facility,” said Dan Carter, Mayor of Oshawa. “We welcome input from Oshawa residents of all ages, user groups and community stakeholders, including Indigenous communities, on facilities including a dedicated space.”
Rick Kerr, Chair of the Community Services Committee, said, “The upcoming multipurpose recreation and cultural center will come online in the mid-stage of development and is exactly where the growth is happening now.”
Station 2 reg. no. count. Tito-Dante Marimpietri noted that the project is in the Ontario Tech and Durham College area, noting that it will include a 30-acre community park.
“Residents of all ages and user groups (will) be eager to enjoy Oshawa’s newest and most modern recreation center,” said Marimpietri.
