In 2013, staff retained the services of an architectural company with experience in pool construction and design. The architectural review resulted in the following recommended upgrades which still remain a priority:
Placement of Equipment – Exposure to the pool atmosphere (chlorine) has corroded equipment including the main electrical panel. Relocation of the electrical room/panels and creating environmental separation will be included in the project.
Chlorination – Chlorine gas is used to maintain the cleanliness of the pool in conjunction with the filtration systems which are outdated. This will be addressed by building a purpose built mechanical room, updating the filtration system and changing over to a liquid chlorine and U.V. system to ensure the best pool environment possible.
Pool Tank Accessibility – The toddler pool, leisure pool, swirl pool and lap pools do not have wheel chair access and limit accessibility. The renovation will address accessibility issues allowing opportunities for all leisure centre users to swim and recreate.
Lobby and Change Room Upgrades – priority upgrades to the lobby and change room will create a more inviting and welcoming environment for Leisure Centre customers and will improve accessibility.
The MRLC opened in 1980 and, to continue serving our citizens into the future, upgrades are needed. The project is driven by the need to update the mechanical and filtration systems that are at the heart of the facility. These systems date back to the original construction and are obsolete, expensive to maintain and have presented reliability concerns. Customer satisfaction and safety is our main priority. These upgrades will not only improve the mechanical systems, but increase overall accessibility and customer enjoyment.
The City is committed to minimizing the impact on our customers throughout the retrofit and is currently working with our neighbouring communities with aquatic facilities to create solutions. Visit this page for updated information as it becomes available. In addition, we will also be extending the outdoor pool season.
Council originally explored the option of building a new wellness centre (including a new aquatic facility) prior to moving forward with the upgrades at the MRLC. The condition of the MRLC has continued to deteriorate and upgrades to the current aquatic facility have since become a priority for Council based on staff recommendations to proceed with a retrofit as soon as possible. A consultation plan is underway to engage the community to learn what a new aquatic facility may look like. To learn more about this, sign up for our Notify Me service.
Customers with memberships will be able to place their passes on hold during the pool closure, or can withdraw their membership and receive a refund.
The budget for this project is set at $9 million.
At this time, the childminding centre is scheduled to remain open throughout the pool closure. Any known closures will be announced with as much notice as possible.
We are unable to provide a time frame for repair of wooden pole street lights, however, they are generally repaired within 14 business days. If the repair exceeds this time frame please contact the Operations Centre and they will confirm that the request has been received by BC Hydro.
