Planning Update


The City of North Vancouver is developing plans for a new Harry Jerome Community Recreation Centre to replace the existing, aging centre.

Vision Statement
“The Harry Jerome Community Recreation Centre will be a welcoming, vibrant, social heart of the community. It will foster individual and collective wellness by providing opportunities to participate in a variety of organized and casual activities. A beacon of pride in the community, the center will reflect the unique identity and character of North Vancouver.” 

On March 12, 2018, City Council received a report and presentation from staff and the HCMA (architects) team. The report and presentation provided an update on the site impacts of the program, confirmed the vision for the Harry Jerome Community Recreation Centre (HJCRC), and provides an early look at the preliminary design of the new facility. Information regarding the preliminary design can be seen on the Magnetic North Van website and at an upcoming public information meeting.
