H.G.R. Mews Centre Replacement: What We Heard

H.G.R. Mews Community Center

Public engagement on a proposed replacement location for the H.G.R Mews Community Centre at Mundy Pond Park took place during July 2019. Feedback from residents and community groups was collected at engagestjohns.ca and during two in-person sessions.
 
The ‘What We Heard’ document summarizes public feedback and is now available online, in the ‘document library’. It summarizes overall themes, likes and dislikes of the proposed location, concerns outlined by local residents, feedback from community groups, and points related to inclusion. The engagement process captured input from 29 people online, approximately 80 visitors during the in-person sessions, and approximately 600 unique visitors to the engage page to learn more about the proposed location.
 
The first phase of public engagement for this project took place in spring 2018 and looked at programming, amenities and a proposed location at the gravel parking lot that is across the street from the current H.G.R. Mews Centre.
 
City Council are slated to vote on the location for replacing the Mews Centre on Monday, August 19. The Council Agenda for Monday’s meeting will be available on the city website by Friday afternoon, August 16.
