Northeast Community Centre Planning

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The City of Coquitlam’s Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan has identified a need for a comprehensive, multi-use recreation centre to support the growing neighbourhood of Burke Mountain - as well as residents across the community. The future Northeast Community Centre is expected to open its doors by 2026, and the City is continuing to engage the community and interested and affected parties to ensure the needs, interests, values and aspirations of the community are identified and reflected in the resulting facility.

How to Get Involved

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback in our Phase 1 engagement from late 2019 to mid 2020. Learn about what we heard and how we used your feedback in our What We Heard infographic.

We are now in Phase 2 of our engagement, which will be running until Jan. 14, 2022. We want to share some more detailed proposals for the community centre and are inviting feedback on the facility’s layout and property.

There are many ways to participate and join the conversation to help shape this future community facility:

Following this round of public engagement, staff will report back to Council in early 2022 to finalize next steps, including financing and the procurement process.

    Will the rec centre include a wood shop? The manual arts shops at Poirier are very successful.

    John B asked about 3 hours ago

    The Centre will not have a wood shop. It will have a Maker's Space which is a room that is intended to be able to accommodate woodworking activities and classes that may involve the use of hand held power tools amongst other activities.

    Why is this facility less than half the size of Poirier Rec Centre when Burke Mountain will have a bigger population than PoCo or Port Moody?

    Jim M. asked about 2 months ago

    The size and program proposed for this facility were developed with consideration that Coquitlam provides a range of balanced, affordable and inclusive recreation and cultural services on a neighbourhood, community and city-wide basis in alignment with existing plans and strategies (rather than on a square foot per capita basis).

    How will it accomodate bikes? If I live locally will there be enough bike parking so I can avoid taking the car in case I want to buy some groceries.

    elwin asked about 2 months ago

    Thank you for your enquiry. Bicycle parking will definitely be included and staff are discussing opportunities for e-bike charging.  The final details for the location and configuration of bicycle parking spaces will be determined in the next project phase.

    Can you please reconsider and include an ice rink in the initial construction of the NECC? The other rinks in Coquitlam are quite a distance away and we could really benefit from the additional space locally. Likely we would still travel to Port Moody for lessons and casual skating in the future if there’s no change. Please let me know if there’s anything that can be done to sway the planners.

    bcmack asked about 2 months ago

    Thank you for your enquiry about the possibility to add ice rinks to the NECC program.  Ice arenas are not included in the base program as the current supply of ice sheets in the City satisfies the demand for the upcoming decade; however, there is space available on the site to add ice arenas should the need arise in the future.
