Lewis Centre update May 3 in Courtenay

The design is undergoing final touches, and now the public is invited to have their first look at the plans for the Lewis Centre expansion and renovation project.
You're invited to attend an information session at the Courtenay Recreation Lewis Centre this Thursday at 6:30 p.m.
Randy Wiwchar, the City’s director of community services, says the design is the result of months of consultation with staff and user groups.
“We’ve gone back and forth over every detail with the architect, trying to figure out what’s going to work best for our wide range of users, while staying within our budget,” he notes. “We think the project is going to make a huge difference in the comfort and usability of the Lewis Centre.”
The information session will feature a presentation by project manager Blair Pettis at 6:30 p.m. in the Lewis Centre meeting room. Display panels will show the most up to date floor plans and exterior design.
The $5.4-million project will add 11,200 square feet to the facility, and modify 3,200 square feet of existing space. Improvements will include a new wellness centre that is nearly four times as large as the existing weight room, new large and small multi-purpose rooms, increased accessibility, storage, as well as better energy efficiency and ventilation.
The session will be held in conjunction with the Courtenay Recreational Association annual general meeting.
