Halfmoon Bay Community Hall Project

Tags:  2023 | News Release
Date Released: May 19, 2023

A new community hall is coming to Connor Park in Halfmoon Bay and the Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) wants residents in the region to help guide the vision for the hall.

The project, originally slated for Coopers Green Park was moved to Connor Park earlier this year following the emergence of significant challenges with building the hall at Coopers Green.

An important piece of the planning is for the community to identify their vision and values for the park and how a new hall would integrate with the existing amenities at Connor Park.  The first of several public events will take place at Connor Park on Thursday, June 15 between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.

The event will include opportunities to view potential sites for the hall and provide ideas and suggestions on the new community hall’s use.

The SCRD is aware of community concern with the hall being located at Connor Park and is keen to clear up one major misconception about the project. We know that environmental conservation and protection of our forested areas and white pine trees is very important to our residents. The intention is to construct the hall with as little impact to the forested area as possible.

The SCRD has launched a community information page for the project at letstalk.scrd.ca/community-hall. On this page, the community can see a timeline of the hall project and see answers to common questions the SCRD has received. This page will be regularly updated as the project continues, and residents are encouraged to share their own ideas for the hall.
