Although the New Horizon Centre, Pollards Hill Library, and Pollards Hill Youth Centre provide many services and activities for the community, a lack of communication, suboptimal use of space, and funding deficiencies make it difficult to satisfy all of the community’s needs. The goal of this project was to evaluate existing programs and recommend how to best utilize the facilities to provide needed services and activities to the Pollards Hill community. Based on stakeholder interviews, an assessment of space usage, and a community survey, we recommend the service providers explore ways to increase revenue through improved space utilization and develop collaborative strategies to promote, supplement, and enhance the programs and activities they offer to the community.
