Place Maillardville Community Centre Renewal


Coquitlam is in the planning stages for the replacement of the 40-year-old Place Maillardville Community Centre.

What’s in Store for Place Maillardville Community Centre?

Place Maillardville has been a cornerstone of the Maillardville neighbourhood for 40 years, and this aging facility can no longer effectively sustain the needs of the community. A new facility will provide an enhanced space to continue to serve the growing and changing needs of the neighbourhood.

The future Place Maillardville Community Centre is proposed to be approximately 2,000 square metres (22,000 square feet) in size, which would enhance the amenities and services offered within a scale, budget and size appropriate for the neighbourhood.

Proposed program spaces and amenities include:

  • a single-court gymnasium,
  • multi-purpose spaces providing flexible space, with server kitchen
  • a lounge for seniors/youth
  • flex space,
  • teaching kitchen,
  • meeting rooms,
  • child minding space,
  • administrative offices,
  • underground parking, and
  • outdoor space including a plaza and park space.

 

Next Steps

One of the goals of the project is to replace the facility on the site using the currently vacant portion of the property as well as adjacent City-owned land. This will enable programs and services to continue in the old building during construction of the new facility.

As such, the project requires applications to amend the Citywide Official Community Plan, along with rezoning, subdivision and a development variance permit to accommodate its siting.

Subject to approvals, construction is expected to start in early 2020 with the new facility planned to be open by the end of 2021.

About Place Maillardville

Place Maillardville Community Centre is a City-owned 11,000 square foot recreation facility serving approximately 8,000 to 10,000 people. The facility has been operated by the Société Place Maillardville Society since 2001. As an aging asset with modest construction, the building is under pressure to continue to serve the diverse and dynamic needs of the Maillardville neighbourhood.
