Vivo (formerly Cardel Place) is the social centerpiece for Ward 3. It’s also far over capacity and in desperate need of expansion. Vivo has an expansion plan, but does not have the funding yet.
“The current project program will expand the existing facility by approximately 50% and includes more aquatic and fitness centre facilities, new or renovated change areas, more specialized areas and highly innovative, research-based spaces such an indoor park and courtyard to be used as spontaneous, community or programmed space”
The funding required is estimated to be between $50-75M. Much of this can come from the provincial government, and I intend to fight to make this happen. This isn’t a “nice to have”, it’s needed.
