Cargill and District Community Fund Entranceway for "Community" Project
The Cargill Community Centre serves as the hub of Cargill’s community and is the primary destination for many community events. Cargill and District Community Fund (C.D.C.F.) are proud to announce the new entrance addition for the community centre, and invite public support as we take this next step in making the centre a viable facility to meet current and future needs of Brockton’s community.
Over two years ago, the need became apparent to address energy inefficiency and accessibility issues. A decision was made to replace the outdated portion of the centre with a newly constructed addition, consisting of an expanded accessible entranceway, larger meeting room, orderly cloak room, and barrier-free washrooms to create a more useful and energy efficient space.
Brockton Council approved the renovation to the Cargill Community Centre entranceway at their February 12, 2018 Council Meeting. The project is expected to cost $805,000, with the municipality committed to finance 40% of this project.
The C.D.C.F. committee strives for the betterment of the Cargill community for everyone to enjoy. The committee are fundraising the remaining $485,000 for this project. Financial support through grants, sponsorships, and donations have raised $185,000 to date. A public campaign is being launched to raise the remaining $300,000.
A public campaign is being launched to raise the remaining $300,000.
