More exciting city building news this week, as we broke ground on the new East London Community Centre.

The new 42,000 square foot community centre will open in early 2019, boasting an indoor leisure and lap pool, gymnasium, community kitchen and artisan space.

This has been a long time coming for this community and we are thrilled to make this investment in East London.

 

Thank you to all the community partners who have made this a reality.

 

As we move forward with our plans for Dundas Place, we unveiled more design details and renderings.

 

Four blocks of Dundas, from Ridout St. to Wellington St. will be transformed into an outdoor entertainment space, hosting year-round arts and culture events.

 

This will be a welcome addition to our downtown as we work toward making London the best place to live, work and play. Details on Dundas Place can be found here.

We’re also looking forward to our Bus Rapid Transit system. Right now, our Shift team is taking a look at the options for the Richmond St. route. There are four different options as we implement bus only lanes.

For further details and the next steps for our BRT plan you can check out our Rapid Transit Implementation Working Group details here.

I hope this Saturday, November 11 you will join me at the Victoria Park Cenotaph to honour those who fought for our freedoms.

We are able to live the life we do because of those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

We remember them.
