On December 13th staff report 2016-147 (Mayfield West Community Centre) was presented at the Town of Caledon General Committee. At that time, I tabled an amendment to have the Community Centre built as Option “B” with an aquatics component. Following much debate, the amendment failed at Committee with a 4 to 3 vote. Last night, the report came to Council for ratification and I again tabled an amendment to have the facility include an aquatics centre. The amendment was passed by Council in a 4 to 3 vote in favour of the aquatics component.
Staff worked diligently on this report and I respect their hard work and the options presented. Not often do I disagree with staff recommendations, but in this instance, following extensive input from the local community, I felt it was in the best interests to pursue the aquatics centre.
I know my community; the Village Centre will be the heart of Mayfield West, a place we will all be proud of.
