The Wellness Centre & Pool Committee (WCPC), is composed of an appointed Mayor/Reeve or Council Member from each of the seven Parry Sound Area Municipalities. From the WCPC Terms of Reference, the Committee has a mandate to "gather information, undertake studies and conduct other analysis, sufficient for the Committee to make a 'Go, No-Go' recommendation to the respective participating Councils to proceed with the construction of the Wellness Centre & Pool."
Per the decision-making governance structure, the WCPC makes recommendations for adoption by each member municipality. The WCPC is supported by a Steering Committee composed of the seven area municipal Chief Administrative Officers. A Citizens Advisory Committee, composed of nine members of the public bringing different skills sets and expertise, reports to the Steering Committee.
The firm CS&P Architects were the successful bidders on an RFP and as of early October, 2019 are undertaking due diligence work regarding site selection, understanding what the community’s needs are, capital costs based on those needs and the location, servicing costs and a business plan to address operating costs once it is built. The seven area municipalities agreed on a cost sharing formula to undertake the due diligence work.
The WCPC meetings are open to the public, are live streamed and recorded. If the meeting is currently streaming, click here to view it on YouTube. To see a playlist of all recorded WCPC meetings on YouTube, click here.
