Ground broken for Queensborough Community Centre expansion

A groundbreaking ceremony was held Tuesday afternoon for a $7.67 million expansion to the Queensborough Community Centre that is scheduled to be completed by the fall of 2012.

The project will add more than 13,000 square feet to the centre and put a licensed daycare, expanded weight room, a library branch, community police office and a multi-use activity space all under one roof.

"This project will bring expanded services to residents of this special and growing part of New Westminster," said Coun. Bill Harper, the acting mayor at the ceremony.

Most of the funding, $6.2 million, came from the Development Assistance Compensation agreement with Gateway Casinos, the city and the province.
The expansion will be constructed to LEED Gold environmental standards. Construction is expected to commence July 25.
