Killarney Community Centre

We want to hear from our community.
It is time to decide if we will sign the contract from the park board.
There are serious concerns about the proposed Joint Operating Agreement (JOA).In the proposed draft agreement, the Park Board wants to:
- Limit our autonomy
- Control how we spend our money
- Be able to evict us and/or terminate the agreement if they don’t like our operations
The Park Board will NOT provide a commitment to sustain community programming.
The Park Board has given each Community Centre Association a deadline of September 30, 2017 to sign the contract.
Our options are:
- Settle for an agreement that is not in the best interest of our community
- Refuse to sign
- Go back to the Park Board and demand an agreement that is fair and workable. (It would only take a few changes by the Park Board for this to happen.)
We need the input of you, our community, on our next steps
