Map showing the location of the proposed Western North York Community Centre on Starview Lane at Weston RoadThe 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:

  • an aquatic centre;
  • a gymnasium;
  • a walking track
  • fitness centre with studios;
  • flexible multi-purpose rooms;
  • a licensed child care; and
  • outdoor spaces.

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.

Digital Open House

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.

Youth Workshops

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.
