Community Centre and Neighbourhood Park

The town is providing a community centre and neighbourhood park on the site of the former hospital. The development of the new community centre will begin in late 2018 with an opening scheduled for fall 2020.

On June 27, Town Council endorsed an overall master plan for the lands. Council also approved the following enhancements for the new South East Community Centre (SECC) on the site: expansion of the single gym to a double gym ($470,000); therapeutic warm-water pool ($2,740,000); fitness centre ($2,550,000) and; an indoor walking track ($1,800,000). These features are in addition to the amenities already planned for the community centre: indoor pool (to replace Centennial Pool), multi-purpose rooms and space for intergenerational programming. Review the news release for more details or check out the June 27 Special Council Agenda for more information, including staff reports.

The creation of a community centre was recommended in the 2012 Parks, Recreation and Library Master Plan. A timeline for the overall project is available on the Former Hospital Site project timeline page.

Former Hospital Site Project

Former Hospital Site Project moves ahead

Demolition contractor on site

In July the town’s demolition contractor mobilized on site and started interior demolition. The overall demolition and remediation will take approximately 12 months to complete. Visit the Former Hospital Site Demolition and Remediation page for regular project updates.

Community Consultation: Thursday, September 28

Consultation sessions – Community Centre and Park
Town Hall, Bronte and Palermo rooms, 3:30–5:30 p.m. or 7–9 p.m.

The town continues to move forward with its plans to construct a new community centre in south east Oakville as part of the redevelopment of the former hospital site. The amenities for the centre were approved by Council in June and the architectural/general contractor team was selected in July.

We would like to hear from you about the conceptual designs for the centre and potential uses for the park.  Please join us at one of the two public consultation sessions at town hall on September 28 to learn more and share your thoughts.

The development of the community centre will begin in late 2018 with an opening scheduled for fall 2020.

Open House – overall Former Hospital Site project
Town Hall, South Atrium, 5–7 p.m.

Progress continues on the redevelopment plans for the overall site. In June, Town Council endorsed a master plan for the lands and in July the town’s demolition contractor mobilized on site and started interior demolition. The overall demolition and remediation will take approximately 12 months to complete.

Moving ahead, a number of Planning Act approvals are necessary in order for the redevelopment of the site to proceed including official plan and zoning amendments, and draft plan of subdivision/site plan approvals. The public meeting regarding amendments to the town’s Official Plan and Zoning By-law is scheduled to go to Planning and Development Council in October.

Attend our open house to learn more.

Former Hospital Site Project Update

The town is working with our community partners to create a vibrant new community centre, park, and future residential areas to meet the needs of Oakville residents on the former site of the Oakville-Trafalgar Memorial Hospital (OTMH).

The Mississauga Halton Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) has also brought forward the concept of a community health hub on the site. LHIN is conducting a health assessment of the area in partnership with the Region, Chief Medical Officer and the town. The results of the study will inform their strategic directions with respect to health and wellness programming locally.

The town is committed to engaging with residents and other stakeholders throughout the process.

Special Council Meeting – May 2, 2017

A Special Council Meeting will be held where Council will hear about the results of the Parks Recreation and Library Master Plan update, the proposed amenities and program requirements for the community centre, and the next steps in the project regarding the overall site planning options.

View the Special Council Agenda for more information on the May 2 meeting, including staff reports.

Further public engagement about the community centre, park and future residential will take place this spring before coming back to Council in June. Continue reading Former Hospital Site Project Update

Innovative Health Sciences and Technology District takes steps forward

Proposed work-live business park first of its kind in Oakville

The concept of an innovative Health, Science and Technology District (HSTD) near the new Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital (OTMH) will continue to move forward following Council’s endorsement of land use parameters. The approved parameters will assist Oakville Green Developments Inc. in further redefining their development proposal for the district. The application will require further studies and a statutory public meeting later this fall before going to Council for final approval.

“This Health Sciences and Technology District would be a world-class community, generating thousands of knowledge-based jobs in Oakville,” said Mayor Burton. “Staff will continue to work with the developer on their application in accordance with the principles Council has endorsed. I also urge residents to share their thoughts on this project once public meetings are scheduled.”

Conceptually, a HSTD would be a unique work-live area that would attract and accommodate health science industries as well as research and technology firms in a compact urban hub. It would support the town’s economic development strategy and would build on significant public investment made to the hospital. Located on a 15.32 hectare piece of land at the northeast corner of Third Line and Dundas Street West just east of the OTMH, the proposed district would result in 4.5 million square feet of leasable area with building heights ranging from eight to 32 storeys and potentially feature close to 9,000 jobs and over 2,000 residents.
