Area residents interested in the future of the former hospital site at 327 Reynolds St. are invited to attend an open house at Oakville Town Hall on Thursday, Sept. 28 to learn more.

Town staff will also be holding two consultation sessions, which will give those who attend the opportunity to give their input on the preliminary conceptual designs for the South East Community Centre planned for the site.

“We encourage everyone to come out to learn more and to share ideas,” said Oakville Mayor Rob Burton.

“Council believes community engagement is vital to our success in everything we do.”

In June, following extensive public consultation, town council approved the amenities for a community centre and endorsed a master plan for the lands that will see the development of a residential district in the north, a civic district with a community centre and park in the middle, and a seniors-oriented housing district in the south.

Redevelopment of the lands is being rolled out in phases, with the building of the community centre and park as the first priority.

These new facilities are scheduled to open in fall 2020.

“Our goal is to design a community centre that will complement the neighbourhood’s distinct character,” said Colleen Bell, Commissioner of Community Services.

“We would like to hear from you about the conceptual designs because your input will help us create a centre that meets the needs of all residents.”

This summer, the town’s demolition contractor mobilized on the site.

The overall demolition of the former hospital and remediation of the site is expected to take approximately 12 months.

The development of the area is scheduled to begin in late 2017 and take about three years.

The open house will take place in town hall’s south atrium from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Those who want to provide input into the community centre’s preliminary conceptual designs can attend one of two consultation sessions being held in town hall’s Oakville and Trafalgar rooms before and after the open house.

The first session runs from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., and the second one runs from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
