The Ucluelet Community Centre
The new Community Centre and Daycare facility is now COMPLETE!! We are extremely excited and proud of this project, which has been many years in the making. This new centre also creates the opportunity for the Recreation Department to re-examine current programs and bring in some new and innovative programming and events for all age groups. Some of the highlights of the Centre include:
• the "Hub"
• Vancouver Island Regional Library
• Community room
• Main hall and performance theatre
• Three activity rooms, a Youth Room and a teaching/catering Food-Safe kitchen
The Hub is located as a separate wing in the facility that has its own entrance and can also be accessed by the main reception area. The purpose of the "Hub" is to provide family and children’s services in one location and to explore opportunities to integrate services. Organizations such as the Westcoast Community Resources Society have offices in the Hub.
The Main Hall will be used for various activities including sports, performances, theatre, weddings and conferences. Some of its many features are a sprung wood floor, sprung main stage, and a children’s stage for entertainment. This hall can house 340 people seated for a performance and 200 seated around tables. With the main hall we not only hope to be hosting a wide variety of events but showcasing and highlighting local talent and culture.

The District of Ucluelet is pleased to provide information regarding the upcoming project for the construction of the Ucluelet Community Centre.
The District of Ucluelet has adopted a “Loan Authorization Bylaw” to authorize the borrowing of funds and issuing of securities to build a new Community Centre. The proposed amount to be borrowed is a maximum of $2 million, which completes the financing of the project (78% of the funding is already in place). The District does not anticipate the need to borrow from the Municipal Finance Authority until 2010. The 2 million loan represents an estimated cost of $48 annually to the average homeowner (based on an asessment of $300,000). The cost of a million dollar loan would be half that at $24 annually (or $2 a month).
This was the topic of the referendum on Saturday, May 3rd 2008. Thank you to all the electors who came out to vote.
