Harry Jerome Community Centre

The Harry Jerome Community Centre recently celebrated its 50th anniversary.  The facility has served the North Vancouver community well, and over the last decade there have been several studies to assess opportunities for revitalization.

Since 2013, City Council has actively demonstrated support for rejuvenating the Harry Jerome Community Centre and has recently ranked the project an “A” for the City’s 2017 – 2026 Project Plan, which indicates support for proceeding with the project in the first five years of the plan.  This, combined with the approved ongoing funding in the program budget, the anticipated opening of the District of North Vancouver’s new Delbrook Centre and the age of the Harry Jerome complex, have led to a focus to construct a new Harry Jerome Community Centre.

Monday April 10, Council directed staff to proceed with a public engagement process to:

  • Obtain input on two Program Options for the new Harry Jerome Community Centre
  • Provide your thoughts about siting the new facility north of 23rd Street
  • Identify your desired open space uses at the site
  • Advise the public that a process to consider the development of the lands on the south side of 23rd Street will occur over the next year, including possible relocation of the North Vancouver Lawn Bowling Club

 

Written feedback is also welcome – Please send to: HarryJeromeProject@cnv.org or 141 West 14th Street North Vancouver, BC V7M 1H9.
