The municipality is hosting a public information session this month in regard to the Community Hub project.

The project proposes a concentration of several municipal assets and departments into the former Sears building in Chatham.

The public information session takes place between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. July 17 at the Bradley Centre on Richmond Street in Chatham.

A new community survey is also launching the same day, seeking feedback and input on the development of the proposed CK Community Hub. The survey will run until Aug. 7 and is available online only, through the municipality’s Let’s Talk platform.

The information session July 17 will be open-house style and will offer an opportunity for community members to view the first architectural renderings of the proposed Community Hub, see proposed floor plans, learn more about the collaboration being conducted with community stakeholders, and get information on the current progress being made on the project.

For those unable to attend the session, all information will be available online through the Chatham-Kent Community Hub Let’s Talk page.

The feedback gathered from the survey will be combined with the feedback from specific community groups such as the library board, the museum committee, and the accessibility committee to help inform the design and features of the proposed Community Hub.

Up-to-date information on the project can be found here:

The Hub would see municipal operations from the Civic Centre, the Chatham branch of the C-K Public Library, and the C-K Museum come together in one location.
