Public can take survey on future of former Discovery Centre

The public will now have a chance to weigh in on the future of the Hamilton Discovery Centre and surrounding lands. The city plans to develop a strategy for these lands that will define a vision for the site.

What started out as a federal museum and then became home to the Sarcoa nightclub the building was transferred to city ownership which provides an opportunity to re-examine options for the use of the Subject Lands.

Council has directed staff to commence the process to develop a long-term strategy for the Subject Lands and has initiated an Opportunity Study.

Staff have been shopping the building to various city departments and there appears to be some interest by the Hamilton Public Library whose only north end branch at James Street North and Picton was closed in 2009. In addition to a possible library branch staff are suggesting other civic uses, including possible heritage-related displays. The staff report says, “A potential was identified to deliver historical and heritage programming, through cost-effective, flexible programming and exhibit space that can be used by multiple stakeholders as part of providing heritage-based visitor experiences. “

The city is inviting interested members of the public to take part in an online survey

The survey will take approximately 5 to 10 minutes to answer.
