The City of Toronto is planning to design and construct a new community centre at 60 Starview Lane.
Timelines are estimated and are subject to change.
The site at 60 Starview Lane was purchased in 2015 and is east of Weston Road and Starview Lane. It is next to the Toronto Catholic District School Board’s St. Basil-the-Great College at 20 Starview Lane.
The scope of work for this project includes the planning, design and construction of a new 77,000 square foot state-of-the-art community and recreation centre that is intended to be a net-zero energy facility. The new centre will replace the existing Carmine Stefano Community Centre, currently being leased by the City. The new community centre will provide enhanced programming with no interruption to service.
Possible components may include:
It will be a place for the community to gather and to socialize. It will be a place that cultivates creativity, health and well-being, inclusivity, and accessibility for all ages and will improve the quality of life for the community.
A digital open house took place from November 23 to December 18, 2020. Draft building and landscape plans were presented, and feedback collected through a survey as part of the Digital Open House. The feedback collected in this phase of engagement will help refine and inform a more detailed design of both indoor and outdoor spaces of the new Centre.
To ensure the centre is designed to be welcoming for local youth, the project team held six youth workshops throughout December of 2020. Each workshop included five to 10 high school students and lasted approximately one hour. The workshops were hosted online using Miro, an interactive online platform that allows participants to vote, leave notes and questions throughout the workshop.

City staff and consultants were in attendance to provide information, answer questions and receive community input on the project.
From April 2019 to the present, the City of Toronto has been consulting community members of the Western North York region on the design of the new Western North York Community Centre.
