MISSISSAUGA, ONT.—The Ontario government has announced that the City of Mississauga will receive $45 million in provincial funding towards the reconstruction of the South Common Community Centre and Library.
The project will include demolition of the existing facility and design and construction of the new centre including a public library, indoor pool and warm water therapeutic pool, fitness centre and studio, gymnasium and community rooms, stated a June 29 release.
Planning and consultation will begin in early 2022. The province will fund 73 per cent of the project with the City of Mississauga picking up the remainder of the cost. The total cost of the project is $61.6 million.
The funding comes from the province’s Strategic Priorities Infrastructure Fund (SPIF), under the Priority Local Infrastructure Stream.
“This funding for the South Common Community Centre and Library comes at a time when we are in great need of financial assistance to keep this facility in good working order for all our residents to use and enjoy,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie in a statement.
