Harry Jerome Project

On March 12 2018, Council directed staff to continue with schematic design, based on the preliminary design as presented in the project update and report by City staff. Over the coming months, concurrent planning processes have proceeded for both sites, and both the financial capacity of the land development south of 23rd Street and a more refined cost of the new community recreation centre were presented to Council on July 23, 2018.  

Harry Jerome Community Recreation Centre

The City of North Vancouver’s Harry Jerome Community Recreation Centre has received approval from Council to proceed to detailed design, tendering and construction. The $200 million project includes an Aquatics facility with 50 M and leisure pools, Gymnasium, Arena, Curling, Fitness, Silver Harbour Seniors' Activity Centre, Multi-Purpose rooms, Children’s area, Youth Centre, Active zone including a new skate plaza and more. Construction is anticipate to begin in 2020, with completion in 2023. The current facility will remain in operation throughout construction. The project will seek to attain the highest standards in accessibility, and will pursue the Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certified Gold level.

As the project progresses, regular updates will be provided to Council on project budget, schedule and overall progress. To date, as part of the schematic design phase, the facility program, architectural design, transportation plan, environmental site review, and a refined cost analysis have all been completed. Consultant teams HCMA Architecture and Resource Planning Group will continue to work with project stakeholders through the refinement of interior spaces and overall facility design. As part of the overall project implementation and phasing,  North Vancouver Lawn Bowling Club has also received approval from Council to be relocated to the Mickey McDougall site. 

Harry Jerome Neighbourhood Lands

In July of 2018, after consultation with the community and deliberation, the Council for the City of North Vancouver provided final approval of the rezoning for the Harry Jerome Neighbourhood Lands. The rezoning – which determines the permitted uses, the height and general location of buildings, and implements development permit area guidelines for the site – is a significant milestone on the path towards the development of the new neighbourhood centre.
