Development Plans

These documents represent the current draft of the design plans that were developed by our Architects based on the direction provided by the Project Committee. Further changes to these plans may be made based on our consultations.

1F: This is the first floor of the building. You will note that there are new, glass doors to the Hall, as well as a partition wall to divide the Hall in half and a new Mezzanine along the South side where tables and chairs can be stored.
2F: This is the second floor of the building. You will note that the current office space has been reorganized to provide three private meeting rooms as well as an open-concept office space. This is still under discussion with staff and not Final.
3F: This is the third floor of the building. You will note that a portion of the library has been sectioned off to provide space for an archives and that this version of the drawings includes dividers that would allow two of the classrooms to expand into larger classrooms.
4F: This is the fourth floor of the building. You will note that this version of the drawings includes dividers that would some of the classrooms to expand into larger classrooms.
5F: This is the fifth floor of the building. You will note small alternations that would allow the Tatami room to be better used for events.

Finances

The initial project budget has been estimated at $3.5Million by an independent, third-party contractor. We anticipate raising these funds from the following sources:

  • $500,000 raised so far
  • $1 Million through Vancouver and BC grants
  • $1.5 Million through Federal Matching Grant
  • $500,000 Loan

Any loans required would only be taken out if there was a reasonable financial plan for repaying it. VJLS-JH is in the process of paying off its previous $1Million loan required to complete the Children’s World project and would be well positioned through new revenue generated by the Interpretive Centre project to pay off this loan.

To provide you with a look at the financial health of VJLS-JH, we have provided the three most recent annual financial statements here:
