Join the Columbus Centre Redevelopment Community Advisory Panel
Villa Charities is forming a Redevelopment Community Advisory Panel (CAP) to gather stakeholder input into programs and services to be offered at the new Columbus Centre. We seek a broad cross-section of volunteer representatives including current and potential future users spanning different age groups, genders and ethnicities.
The Columbus Centre will remain open and fully operational until June 30, 2018. All staff, and the programs and services we offer, will continue to be located in our current facility until that time. Demolition and construction are expected to begin in summer 2018, and the new facility is expected to open in fall 2020.
