Coquitlam’s Parks Recreation and Culture Master Plan identified the future need for a comprehensive multi-use community recreation centre to be placed in the Burke Mountain Village neighbourhood area. This community centre is anticipated to be open by 2026, and will include a variety of programs and uses.
The population of the Northeast Neighbourhood Area was documented to be 12,100 people in the 2016 Census. Population projections show that this area may have a population of 21,000 people by 2026, growing to 39,000 by 2046.
The City is working to plan a facility that will meet the needs of current and future residents of the community.
How to Get Involved
City staff and consultants will be hosting a design charrette for the future Northeast Community Centre.
These sessions are currently ON HOLD until 2021 to allow more time for technical and site analysis. We apologize for any inconvenience.
The consultation feedback, together with site and technical analysis and application of community planning best principles, will help inform the community centre program concept for Council’s consideration that is anticipated to be presented to Council in early 2021.
A virtual public open house will follow with an opportunity to comment about the proposed community centre program concept.
Design, permits and construction will follow and the Centre is targeted to open in 2026.
Process to date
The City hosted a community survey between Nov. 18 and Dec. 11, 2019. 823 responses were collected, and the findings of that survey are attached to staff’s report to Council-in-Committee on February 10, 2020.
The survey was the beginning of a full planning process for the Northeast Community Centre. Through analysis of the data received, staff identified a need for further community consultation, and throughout the spring and summer of 2020 engaged with a variety of local groups and Council Committees for further input.
