Progress Update on Valleyview Community Centre


January 6, 2017

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Brandon, MB – The City of Brandon and all parties involved report that progress continues to be made on issues relating to the ongoing closure of the Valleyview Community Centre, located at 77 Whillier Drive.

The City of Brandon is pleased to report that, with cooperation from the Province’s Department of Families, the use of three modular trailers has been secured to accommodate the Centre’s main tenant, Valleyview Kid Zone Inc. day-care centre. These units will be placed to the south of the Valleyview Community Centre, with ready access to water and electrical hook-ups. Valleyview Kid Zone Inc., through assistance provided by its insurance coverage, was able to obtain the modular trailers for temporary use, with an expected move-in date set for late in January. In the meantime, short-term space for the day-care centre has been secured in a local church.

Work continues by City of Brandon administration to develop a comprehensive plan to address the Valleyview Community Centre building’s identified structural issues and proceed to tender for remediation as soon as possible.  However, until all necessary work can be completed, the Valleyview Community Centre building remains CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC. At this time, the City of Brandon would like to acknowledge the dedicated work of a handful of volunteers who have worked to prepare the outdoor ice skating surface to the north of the Centre, which is now available for public use.

Meanwhile, the Valleyview Community Centre’s Board of Directors is working closely with the Central Council of Community Centres to accommodate the various user groups and any rental bookings impacted by the closure. Contact information for the Central Council of Community Centres can be found on the City of Brandon’s website here: http://www.brandon.ca/community-centres/centre-information.

The City of Brandon would like to thank all those involved for their patience as it continues to determine the best course of action for the Centre and for the community.
