Council takes plunge, approves aquatic centre

Included in the motion that affects West Windsor residents:

- The main pool (but not the therapy pool) of the Adie Knox Herman recreation complex will be closed.
- A lease agreement will put the Windsor Essex Community Health Centre in the College Avenue Community Centre building.

After being present at the 7.5 hour council meeting last night, I witnessed over 40 delegates express their viewpoints and ideas. There were many from West Windsor who spoke clearly against the closures of Adie Knox and the College Avenue Community Centre. Given that council voted on the motion put forward (see link below), it is essential that residents partake in the process and discussions that will follow. We have an opportunity to really define what we want to see in our community centres, not just in the west-end, but across the city.

All for now,
