This feasibility and planning study explored the potential for a new community center within Lonsdale. It also explored the potential for relocation of the police department, vehicle storage and city hall offices.
A series of public meetings were held. At the meetings, issues such as building program, site, cost and conceptual design were discussed and directions set. Other community groups, such as seniors and community education, were interviewed for their feedback.
After selecting a site and developing schematic plans for a shared facility (recreation, community education and police) the proposed project was put up for a referendum vote to Lonsdale citizens.
