New Community Centre?

A New Community Centre

or Hub for our Area

Andrew wants to build unity in our community.  "Let's give seniors, youth, newcomers, and all residents in our district a safe space where they can meet, socialize, access community resources and participate in affordable programs.

"Halifax is a culturally diverse city.  It is important to have a space where programs and resources are available to its residents."  As part of that initiative, Andrew wants to bring HRM recreational programming back into our neighbourhood, whether that be in a new facility, or utilizing existing infrastructure.

"Fairview, Old Clayton Park, Rockingham and Kearney Lake, are known to many seniors as a place to live for life, and yet, there isn't a seniors' club, nor place for them to hold regular meetings and activities."  Andrew wants to help create a seniors' club and give them a space to use in a community centre or hub.  The youth need a safe and positive place to hang out; a place where they can be involved and participate with community.  Our district needs recreational space for our seniors that can be accessed during the day and night.  

Did you know that we used to have an HRM  community centre in Clayton Park?

This space has been redeveloped for other use.

HRM leadership has let us down by taking away Northcliffe and Rockingham Community Centres.  With the loss of these centres, residents have been forced to go outside of our district to access affordable programs and services.

For many residents, some facilities and programs are not affordable, while others are not easily accessible from District 10.

TWO EXAMPLES ARE:

Canada Games Centre

  • Not affordable for many residents

  • Not a community centre

  • Does not offer HRM recreational programs

  • Not in District 10

St. Andrew's Recreation Centre

  • Location not easily accessible

    • On one-way street

  • Not in District 10

  • District 9 is building a new centre

   An Idea    

 

Build a new Commmunity Centre in our area to include:

  • Community Space

  • HRM recreational programming

  • Clubs for seniors

  • Clubs for youth

  • Public Health / Blood Collection

  • Family Resource Centre

  • Employment Services

  • Newcomer Services

  • Community Policing

  • Affordable and accessible programs for all

  • Intergenerational programs, bringing youth and seniors together

  • In-service and summer day camps for school-aged children

  • Playground and splash pad for kids and families

Spash Pad

Andrew will work with our community organizations to help fix up our community.

Please elect Andrew CURRAN for District 10 Councillor this October.

LET'S FIX UP OUR COMMUNITY!
