Here to Stay – Repairs Planned for Port Credit Library

By Issues, Resources, Stephen’s Initiatives, Ward 1

I have worked over the last several months, on your behalf, to ensure that we were able to keep the Port Credit Library in our community. Today, I am pleased with the decision that this quintessential structure’s future was passed on consent. I would like to thank you for your patience and understanding on this matter. For further details, please see the release below.


 

February 9, 2022

A plan to repair the foundation of the Port Credit Library was approved in principle at today’s General Committee meeting. This will enable the library to reopen in the same location once the work to rehabilitate the building is completed.

“Over the past several months, I have been working extensively to ensure that Ward 1 is able to have a library in the Port Credit community. I am so pleased it will be able to stay in its present place – it’s a popular location that means so much to library customers and the Port Credit neighbourhood,” said Stephen Dasko, Councillor, Ward 1. “Thank you to everyone for your patience as staff, Council and I worked to develop a viable, long-term plan for the library.”

The building has been closed to the public since June 28, 2021. The library and Port Credit Memorial Park are built on landfill that over time has impacted the stability of the building’s foundation and supports.

Since that time, City staff researched and reviewed several options that include:

  • – building a new library at the same location
  • – relocating to another location in the Lakeshore area
  • – maintaining the existing 8,200 sq. ft. library by repairing the existing concrete foundation

The report recommended that the City proceed with the repair option and keep the building in its current location at a cost of approximately $6 to $8 million.

The repair work involves a process the City first tested in 2016 as a pilot project, whereby helical piles (steel pipes) were installed onto three piers to stabilize the foundation. This was found to be an effective long-term solution and will be used to repair the entire foundation.

The foundation repair is expected to extend the building’s life for another 50 years.

“Rehabilitating the foundation is a benefit for everyone. It is the most cost-effective solution, it allows the library to stay in the neighbourhood and it extends the life of the building for many years to come,” said Shari Lichterman, Commissioner, Corporate Services and Chief Financial Officer.

The construction timeline is approximately 20 to 24 months, with the library expected to reopen in late 2023 or early 2024.

The recommendation to repair the Port Credit Library foundation will be before Council for final approval on February 16.

“The Port Credit Memorial Arena Pop Up Library will continue to serve the community as the library building undergoes rehabilitation,” said Jodi Robillos, Commissioner, Community Services. “Customers can also access any of our other 17 locations or our wide range of ebooks, audiobooks and other online services.”

Carmen Corbasson Community Centre Renovation

By Events, Issues, Resources, Ward 1

May 9, 2022

On June 20, 2022, the Carmen Corbasson Community Centre will close to the public for renovations. The closure marks the start of a two-year renovation project for the Ward 1 community centre. Construction is set to begin the first week of July.The project includes renovating and building a new addition that will improve the quality of recreation services, implementing higher accessibility and green building standards to improve energy efficiency and savings, and reducing the City’s carbon footprint.

“Renovating Carmen Corbasson Community Centre is part of our efforts to enhance the recreation programs and services that we offer to our community members,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “We’re committed to improving facility sustainability, accessibility and safety features while also providing the top-quality programming that the City of Mississauga has become known for. We look forward to welcoming back residents once renovations are complete.”

The community centre will reopen in fall 2024. Once completed, the renovated facility will include:

  • A fitness centre with cardio machines, weights and fitness studio with wood sprung floor
  • A new aquatics centre with a 25-metre, six-lane pool and a warm water therapy pool
  • A new multi-purpose space
  • Enhancements to existing multi-purpose spaces
  • Renovations to the indoor arena
  • Improved connections to the Mississauga Seniors’ Centre
  • Improved sustainable and accessible design standards

“The Carmen Corbasson Community Centre has been a staple in the Ward 1 community for more than 40 years,” said Stephen Dasko, Ward 1 Councillor. “It’s exciting to see the vision for this beloved facility become a reality as the renovation begins. This eagerly-anticipated project will enhance the quality of life for local residents by allowing the opportunity for more programming and improved access and safety, while raising the bar on sustainability and green building standards.”

This redevelopment was recommended and approved as part of the City’s 2019 Recreation Master plan, which was informed through extensive community consultation.

“The Carmen Corbasson Community Centre underwent an extensive renovation about 20 years ago,” said Kristina Zietsma, Director, Recreation. “This much-needed redevelopment project is addressing aging infrastructure and will also offer much more in the way of services, programs and activities for Ward 1 and beyond.”

Although the facility closure is scheduled for June 20 many services will continue to be available at community facilities throughout the City. All aquatic programming at Cawthra Park Secondary School will continue as normal through the redevelopment.  The Mississauga Seniors’ Centre will remain open. Site access during the renovation will change to allow for the construction zone to be secured.
