On October 6, I visited Oakridge Community Centre and found it in a state of disrepair:
- Lobby lightbulbs that can't be changed
- Leaking ceiling
- Damaged holes in drywall
- Hot tub that has been out of order for years
- No hot water for several days.
You read that right - no hot water. That the facility this community relies on has become unhealthy and unsafe is shameful.
Oakridge is also missing out on other community services, like a proper library: a bookmobile is an insufficient band-aid solution.
We need to invest in Oakridge, a city-designated Neighbourhood Improvement Area, providing the proper community services needed here.
