Building our future Mississauga

Mississauga was presented with an exciting opportunity to revitalize its infrastructure and stimulate the local economy, thanks to an allocation of $145 million in funding under the federal and provincial government's infrastructure Stimulus Fund (ISF) program, plus $24 million for Recreational Infrastructure Canada (RInC) projects.

Overview

According to the City of Mississauga’s Strategic Plan, one of the City’s strategic goals is to build and maintain its infrastructure for its citizens and for generations to come. A sound, functional and attractive infrastructure is integral in completing its neighbourhoods, as we build a City for the 21st century.

Studies show that swimming is one of the most popular leisure activities with 90 per cent of children/youth and 56 per cent of the adult population participating. City-wide population projections show a deficit in aquatic services over the next five years.

The existing indoor Clarkson and Malton pools, which each average 40,000 visits per year, are reaching a life-cycle stage requiring significant capital repair and rehabilitation. Replacement pools will offer an aquatic feature to enhance the appeal of the community centres in these neighbourhoods.

The outdoor pools range in age from 33 to 56 years old. Despite vigorous maintenance programs, these pools have reached a stage of lifecycle where significant capital repair and rehabilitation are required. Therefore, necessary pool tank repairs, deck rehabilitation and building renovation will significantly expand the pools’ lifespan.

Objectives and benefits

The existing Clarkson Pool located at Clarkson Secondary School will be replaced with a new 25 metre lap pool and a warmwater therapy/leisure pool attached to the Clarkson Community Centre and Library. The existing Malton Pool located at Lincoln Alexander Secondary School will be replaced with a new leisure pool and therapy pool attached to the Malton Community Centre and Library.

Investing in the two new leisure oriented indoor pools attached to multi-use community centres will generate a number of benefits for the community including energy efficient systems which will allow a reduction in energy consumption and improved efficiencies; accessible facilities that meet current standards; double the number of pool uses (to 80,000 uses per year); better service changing demographics; enhance the appeal of the existing facility; increase the number of visits to the community centre and library sections of the facility; and, continue to service nearby student populations.

Re-investing in the six outdoor pools will reduce energy consumption and improve water usage efficiency through necessary repairs to the pool tank and filtration system; improve accessibility and meet current standards; provide a shaded area for patrons; continue to provide a facility that can meet the demands of changing demographics; enhance the appeal of the existing facility; and, increase the number of visits due to the modern design and amenities.

Through planned improvements, the lifespan of the outdoor pools is expected to increase by a minimum of 25 years.

Background

According to the City of Mississauga’s Strategic Plan, one of the City’s strategic goals is to build and maintain its infrastructure for its citizens for generations to come. Sound, functional and attractive buildings, facilities, roads, transit, public and open spaces are integral to completing our neighbourhoods as we build a City for the 21st century.

Don McLean Westacres Outdoor Pool is 47 years old and serves approximately 85,000 residents and is the last of the City’s outdoor pools to be redeveloped. Construction will update the pool’s mechanical systems to increase its lifecycle, efficient use of energy and water, and improve accessibility for residents of all ages.

Project details

Objectives and benefits

Reinvesting in the redevelopment of the existing outdoor pool and building will significantly expand the outdoor pool’s lifespan, and will include:

  • Updating facility change rooms and washrooms
  • Replacing the pool tank
  • Bringing the facility to Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) standards
  • Providing two barrier-free parking spaces
  • Upgrading site services
  • Replacing the pool deck

This investment will generate a number of benefits for the community with enhancements that will include:

  • Improved energy efficiency
  • Reduced water consumption by replacing pool tank and filtration system
  • Better accessibility
  • Shaded area for pool users
  • Increased use by area residents due to the facility’s new, modern and appealing visual and functional design

The community has committed to raise funds towards the project.

Project details

  • Project: Mechanical Equipment Lifecycle Replacement
  • Estimated Cost: $1.0 million
  • Architect: Efficiency Engineering Inc.
  • Contractors: Velocity Mechanical Inc.

Objectives and benefits

Major repair of the facility’s dehumidification and water heating units are necessary to address air quality and hot water supply issues which will require the City to close the pool for an extended period. The closure provides an opportunity to include change room upgrades (replacement of floor and wall tiles) and painting.

Background

According to the City of Mississauga’s Strategic Plan, one of the City’s strategic goals is to build and maintain its infrastructure for its citizens for generations to come. Sound, functional and attractive buildings, facilities, roads, transit, public and open spaces are integral to completing our neighbourhoods as we build a City for the 21st century.

River Grove Community Centre was initially opened in September 1996, and has undergone minor repairs and renovations during the last 15 years. It currently is the highest facility for attendance in aquatic programs, membership, drop-in swim programs and rentals. It consists of 67,000 square feet which includes a pool, play pool/hot tub and pool slide, fitness studio with aerobic studio and squash courts, meeting rooms (large auditorium/gymnasium combination) and lobby space.

Project details

  • Estimated Cost: $10.7 million
  • Architect: MacLennan Jaunkalns Miller Architects
  • Contractors: Aquicon Construction Co. Ltd.

Objectives and benefits

A number of factors have made the renovation of this facility a priority including expanding change room and fitness space as well as significant repair of mechanical systems.

The construction program includes a number of mechanical upgrades and enlarging change rooms and fitness facilities to address customer feedback and to meet the growing and changing needs of the community.

Once complete, residents will enjoy the use of a more comfortable and functional facility while the City also realizes the benefit of a more energy efficient facility that is more cost effective to operate.

Shut down is planned in July 2013 and the facility will open again when construction ends in July 2014.
