Residents Invited to Participate in Second Junction East Project Open House
Apr 6, 2021
The City of Greater Sudbury continues to look to the public for input in the Junction East Project, the new central Library/Art Gallery.
As part of an extensive community engagement campaign, the City and WZMH Architects have been facilitating consultation sessions to gain the community’s feedback into the development of a design for the facility. The first public brainstorming sessions took place in February. In addition, over the last eight weeks, a series of consultation sessions have been conducted with stakeholders and various focus groups in the community.
Residents are now invited to participate in a second Virtual Public Open House on April 7, 2021 to expand on the findings from the initial brainstorming and focus groups sessions. Two sessions are being held, from 3 to 5 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. More information is available at https://overtoyou.greatersudbury.ca/.
Residents who are unable to attend the public engagement sessions can provide feedback by completing an online survey at https://overtoyou.greatersudbury.ca/ until April 9, 2021. Paper copies are available by curbside pickup at all libraries during operating hours. Upon arrival, follow the curbside instructions posted at each branch to request a survey from staff. The completed survey can then be placed in the book return.
Expected to open in 2024, Junction East will include the Greater Sudbury Public Library Main Branch and the Art Gallery of Sudbury, located on the east side of Shaughnessy Street in the downtown. The City and WZMH are examining the potential to integrate the Sudbury Theatre Centre and Sudbury Multicultural and Folk Arts Association into the project as well.
