(September 4, 2020) Letter from Councillor Mark Grimes, Ward 3, Etobicoke-Lakeshore


This report seeks to reinforce the Board and City Council's commitment to relocate the existing, outdated Etobicoke Civic Centre ("ECC") to the Westwood Theatre Lands ("WTL") as an integral City Building initiative. The establishment of this new civic centre will provide much needed services for a growing West District and act as a catalyst for revitalization of the Etobicoke City Centre. Additional social, economic, and financial benefits include:

  • New civic and community infrastructure, including a recreation centre, library, childcare, and public square;
  • Replacement of the existing old, functionally obsolete and costly ECC facility;
  • Positioning of municipal services at a transit hub, improving access for residents, staff and visitors;
  • Improved public realm through internationally renowned, state of the art design;
  • Support for TransformTO by building a Net-Zero community and incorporation of district energy systems;
  • Support for ModernTO with efficient municipal office spaces and redistribution of jobs to Etobicoke;
  • Prudent financial plan with significant funding contributed from unlocking underutilized City-owned land in the West District.
