This neighbourhood is changing – demographics are shifting, the community is aging, institutions are expanding, condos are going up, housing prices are rising, the Atkinson Co-op (formerly known as Alexandra Park Housing) is about to be revitalized and communities with long histories like the Kensington Market and Chinatown are transforming.
Scadding Court Community Centre, the Sanderson Library and the Alexandra Park Neighbourhood Learning Centre are starting to plan for these changes by exploring options for redeveloping our site. We are embarking on a long process to create a place for ourselves in this community’s future. We are exploring partnerships and options for how to give the city improved public assets so that we can expand and improve our services, without costing the city a dime.
Change is inevitable but also can be good. What’s important is that people get involved. Anyone who would like to be kept informed can join our redevelopment mailing list so that we can update you as the process unfolds.
Where We Are So Far:
