Executive Summary:
The Fleury Park Project complies with the Parks and Recreation Master Plan on many levels. The proposed project also complements the Promenade Study to rejuvenate the YongeWellington area. There is an opportunity to receive a Heritage Canada Legacy Fund grant of $500,000 by linking to our Sesquicentennial Celebrations. The project utilizes smart vent technologies to allow building on flood plains. The Project is designed to proceed in stages as shown on the Implementation Schedule. The ACTC estimates the cost of this project is between 2 and 2.5 million dollars. Town Staff arrived at a cost estimate of 8 million plus dollars. This report provides documentation to support our calculations.

Cost Comparison:
Fleury Park Playhouse and Angus Glen Tennis Centre Scope: In order to provide a basis for comparative costs, the following data were obtained from a Markham staff report presented to the Markham Council General Committee re: the Angus Glen Tennis Centre, a tennis-only facility built in July 2011. The Angus Glen Project included building four courts and a structure covering the four courts. The proposed Fleury Park Playhouse project includes building two additional courts to add onto the four existing ones, as well as a covered structure over all six courts. Summary: Bid price for the Angus Glen Tennis Centre ………………………………………………………. $3,352,895.77

Consideration: The proposed Fleury Park Playhouse structure will be built with less expensive materials resulting in two builder’s quotes received for the Fleury Park Playhouse of approximately $1,300,000 (see attachment) which is considerably less than the projected cost of $2,785,342 for the Angus Glen project, had their structure been built to cover six tennis courts. You can see the calculations used to determine the projected Angus Glen Tennis Centre in our Attachments. Conclusion: The above cost comparison with the Angus Glen project validates the estimated cost for the Fleury Park Playhouse of $1,300,000. The overall estimated total cost of $2,000,000 to $2,500,000 for the Fleury Park project is clearly more realistic than the $8,000,000 plus estimate provided by Town staff.

An Assessment of the Fleury Park Project in Relation to the Parks and Recreation Master Plan - 2010
Final Report 2010: To serve a welcoming and dynamic town having a strong sense of community pride and volunteerism, committed to healthy and inclusive lifestyles inspired by its natural heritage, historical culture, diverse neighborhoods., t Like the Town, ACTC used the Parks and Recreation Master Plan 2010 as a template to see where there were complementary connections. On any of the following documents where you see a page reference at the top of the page, that is a reference to the Master Plan. As we studied the Master Plan we found it to be an excellent guide or tool to envision future development for recreation, arts, culture and social development in Aurora. There were many encouraging messages that touched on the challenges and potential solutions that we address in our Feasibility Study.

Parks & Recreation Master Plan 2010 Executive Summary (page iii)
With a rapidly growing and increasingly diversified population base, the Town of Aurora has undertaken this Parks & Recreation Master Plan to guide and direct leisure service activities, programs, services and facilities through to the year 2013. The Master Plan has been developed based upon research, understanding of demographics and relevant trends, outreach initiatives with the community, consultations with local stakeholders and detailed needs assessments. The key findings are articulated as follows.

Proactive Acquisition and Assembly of Active Parkland is Necessary
Analysis shows that the amount of ‘Community Parkland’, which are large tracts of parkland that can accommodate sports fields and other major leisure facilities, is presently in deficit and between 45 (#) and 48 hectares will be needed by the year 2013. Given heavy reliance upon non‐municipal outdoor facilities (i.e. those at schools, industrial lands, etc.), the Town would be best served by acquiring land(s) for the purposes of a multi‐field sports complex (i.e. soccer fields, and/or multi‐use field); it is recommended, however, that sports field development should only take place if access to a significant number of key non‐municipal fields ceases. Proactive land assembly may also benefit the Town by securing an appropriate site for which a future indoor community leisure facility which may be required beyond the term of this Master Plan. An opportunity for land acquisition could be to assemble lands adjacent to the Stronach Aurora Recreation Complex in advance of future outdoor and/or indoor facility additions to the site.

Development / Redevelopment of Community Program Space
To meet the growing leisure programming demands offered by the Town and its community partners, additional multi‐use community program space(*) and rental venues will be required. Such space should be included in any new leisure facilities which are constructed in the future, however, existing municipal venues (e.g. the old public library, Victoria Hall, etc.) should be evaluated for their ability to be improved in such a manner that a broader range of services can be provided. Fleury Park Project Compliance Features: 1. (#) Use land already owned (at Fleury Park) which lies fallow eight months of the year. No need to purchase expensive new land for meeting recreational needs. 2. * The Fleury Park Playhouse Project is a multi-use, multi-function, revenue generating initiative.

Parks & Recreation Master Plan 2010
Research & Consultation (page 7)
General Trends in the Leisure System

1. Income can be a significant barrier to participation in leisure pursuits if costs to participate are high – a person’s ability to pay needs to be considered by municipalities and community organizations alike when delivering leisure services. 2. Demand for unorganized and drop‐in activities is on the rise, at the expense of most organized and structured programs which are inflexible to those with limited amounts of free time. 3. The “multi‐use” facility and park concept is being increasingly viewed as the preferred development model since it consolidates a number of leisure activities at a single location, thereby providing a “one‐stop shopping” venue for time‐pressed individuals, offering crossprogramming opportunities for a wide range of ages, and reducing municipal operational costs. 4. Municipalities are often entering into partnerships with community and private‐sector organizations to maximize efficiencies associated with capital and operational costs, so long as the municipality and the community benefit as a whole. 5. Volunteerism is in decline across the country, therefore, supporting local volunteers is critical to ensuring that these dedicated individuals continue to participate in civic life and that new volunteers can be recruited.
Fleury Park Project Compliance Features: 1. Income: Four summer month’s provide free, unfettered, public access to Fleury Park Play Areas. 2. Unorganized: Two additional court areas would provide 50% increased play time availability. 3. Multi-use: The Fleury Park Proposal champions and complies with multiple use activities (cross programming, one stop shopping). (tennis, basketball, volleyball, pickle ball) 4. Partnerships: By the Town partnering with ACTC, an non-profit community organization the Federal government Legacy Fund will consider an application of up to $500,000 in a capital grant. 5. Volunteerism: The Fleury Project has received full support from Sport Aurora and the Aurora Senior’s Association. In addition, the Play House with its beautiful and open, sunshine doors will attract and invigorate an interest in volunteerism and civic participation.

Indoor Recreation Facilities (page 21)
3.7 Older Adult & Senior Spaces Given the considerable growth in the older adult population, additional seniors space will be required beyond the timeframe of this Master Plan. At this time, the growth in the seniors population may necessitate the expansion of existing multi‐use spaces utilized by seniors (including the Aurora Seniors Centre) as well as the development of new venues for older adults/seniors to congregate and participate in leisurely pursuits. There will be a growing need for spaces at multi‐use centres where the new senior will likely be spending the majority of their leisure time, given the propensity to seek active living opportunities. Future seniors spaces are preferably provided within the multi‐use leisure facility template to allow greater degree of participation in physical activities pursued by older adults and the “new” senior such as swimming (e.g. aqua fitness, therapeutic programs, etc.) or ice sports (“old‐timer” leagues, etc.) Fleury Park Project Compliance Features: 1. The Aurora Seniors Association has given a letter of support for the Fleury Project. 2. The Seniors Centre in interested in using the Playhouse for pickle ball and the Fleury Park Playhouse could be a new venue for older adult/seniors to congregate and participate in leisurely pursuits. 3.8 Gymnasiums Consideration of constructing a municipal gymnasium could be considered in concert with a new youth centre. A detailed study should be undertaken, based on wide public consultation and a market study, to determine unmet youth needs, gaps in services to youth and the facilities required to meet the identified needs and close identified gaps. The analysis should be conducted independent of town Departments (to avoid institutional bias, real or perceived) and include all sectors: spots, recreation and cultural. The methodology should not take a ”single solution” approach. The provision of a municipal gymnasium could either take place by way of expansion of an existing community recreation facility or through new facility development. Fleury Park Project Compliance Features: 1. Pickle ball, badminton, etc. could be played in the Fleury Playhouse. The Fleury Park Project advocates an expansion of an existing community recreation facility. There are complementary features in the Fleury Project that could support the goals related to the development of a youth centre.

Outdoor Recreation Facilities (page 32)
4.5 Tennis, Basketball & Multi-Use Courts
It is preferred that the Town utilize a multi‐use court provision model that combines these tennis and basketball facilities together in a single template. Doing so will offer efficiencies associated with capital investment, maintenance, land requirements and the number of unstructured uses that can take place (basketball, tennis, ball hockey, outdoor ice, etc.). The courts should be lined with basketball and tennis boundaries and are generally “first come, first serve” in terms of usage as would be at any other playing court, however, a time limit for users in high demand areas may be a way to encourage equitable access for all users. Development of future facilities should take the form of a multi‐use court concept unless specifically designed for high quality, competitive level tennis or basketball (e.g. McMahon Park tennis courts) in which case dedicated courts should be constructed. Consideration of basketball half courts may be appropriate in smaller neighbourhood parks where gaps in service provision need to be addressed. Fleury Park Project Compliance Features: Fleury Park Project Compliance Features: 1. The Fleury Park Project advocates a multi-use, multi-function model.

Parks & Recreation Master Plan 2010
Outdoor Recreation Facilities: (page 33)
With regard to competitive/organized tennis opportunities, there are presently three dedicated club courts in Aurora which are exclusively used and operated by the Aurora Tennis Club (under contract with the Town). Should there be merit in expanding the number of ‘club courts’ as well as evaluating the feasibility of constructing an all‐weather tennis enclosure to facilitate winter play there are two general options that could be considered in this regards. 1 Conversion of Fleury Park to Club Courts – Designating Fleury Park as a venue for competitive/organized tennis, while beneficial from the perspective of revenue generation and proximity to club courts at McMahon Park, would also remove free public access for users of Fleury Park and seven of the eleven municipal courts would potentially become club facilities. Furthermore, development is contingent upon approval from the Conservation Authority due to its location on flood plain lands.

10 Fleury Park Project Compliance Features: 1. ACTC has no interest in converting Fleury Park to Club courts. We are happy where we are and have communicated that when consulted. Since receiving Ontario Trillium Grant that improved our clubhouse our members and the public enjoy our improved facilities. 2. ACTC promotes two additional courts at Fleury Park for increased free public accessibility during the warm months (May-September). 3. ACTC also is promoting the application for a Town owned weather proofed enclosure for multiple users for multiple functions.

2

Relocation of All Club Courts to the Aurora Community Centre Site – An option to the provision of club courts at McMahon and Fleury Parks would be to move all outdoor club courts to the Stronach Aurora Recreation Complex site, as part of a facility and site redevelopment process as suggested in Section 3. Doing so would consolidate competitive tennis opportunities at a single location, create opportunities for tournament play, and capitalize on fitness and dry land training opportunities for tennis players (assuming a fitness centre and/or gymnasium is developed at the Complex). This course of action, however, would imply that the courts at McMahon Park be designated for free public use, with the Aurora Recreation Complex containing the replacement/additional club courts.

Fleury Park Project Compliance Features: 1. Contrary to the Master Plan, ACTC is not interested in a fitness and training gymnasium like the Stronach Centre Complex. Such a facility would be competitive with private operators like the Timberlane Athletic Club. 2. Contrary to the Master Plan, ACTC is content with its level of competitive activities at McMahon Park.

7.

Continue to offer a variety of leisure program and rental opportunities out of existing municipal facilities, to the greatest degree possible, subject to the space review process that is underway.

8. Together with recommendation #2, underutilized or vacant community buildings suitable for providing expanded and enhanced opportunities to the community, should be reviewed as part of a cluster strategy with the goal of addressing a future Arts & Culture Master Plan objectives through the establishment of the Arts & Culture Master Plan. 9. Any new leisure facilities developed in the future should contain flexible community rental and program spaces.

11

Fleury Park Project Compliance Features: 7. The Fleury Park Project leverages existing land, location and staff resources at Fleury Park. 8. The Fleury Park Proposal addresses an under-utilized venue to provide expanded and enhanced opportunities for players: athletic, dramatic and musical. This multi-functional proposal links to the Promenade Study and to the proposed Hillary House McIntyre Park Initiative. These resonating components would invigorate the downtown core. 9. The large sunshine doors allow for events and activities to be quickly set up and struck down, maximizing rental revenue and program flexibility.

Parks & Recreation Master Plan 2010
Outdoor Recreational Facilities: (page 38)
410 Outdoor Skating Rinks:
The Town of Aurora maintains four outdoor skating rinks at Confederation Park, Machell Park, Town Park and Ada Johnson Park. The provision of outdoor skating venues is one way to alleviate pressures on arena demand, as it can facilitate public skating and pickup shinny opportunities, while they can also create focal points for community activities and special events. The multi‐use court template, described earlier in this Section, can be used to frame an outdoor rink in the winter season. It is recommended that the Town explore the possibility of providing an artificial ice surface at future multi‐use court(s) in order to determine the feasibility and cost‐effectiveness of this amenity in the context of evolving climatic conditions. An artificial ice rink is only deemed to be appropriate in a Community Park setting, a centralized location and/or a park intended for civic gatherings. The Town of Aurora assists with volunteer maintained ice rinks at Chapman Park, Civic Square, and James Lloyd Park, a service delivery approach that should be extended to other appropriate park locations where community support exists to do so. Fleury Park Project Compliance Features: If the Playhouse is not built or approved the money spent on two additional courts, the retaining wall and parking lot good value because: a minimum of 2 lighted skating areas allowing for a variety of skating activities (children, teens, shinny hockey)

12

Parks & Recreation Master Plan 2010
Outdoor Skating Rinks (page 70)
39. The Town should continue to work with volunteers to maintain natural ice rinks on municipal land for public use. Fleury Park Project Compliance Features: Harvest the Playhouse shade. A shaded ice rink close to the proposed Irwin street parking lot would not be compromised by ice melting sunshine.

Parks & Recreation Master Plan 2010
Parks & Open Spaces: (page 48)
Comfort Facilities Wherever possible, the Town should cluster the same type of playing fields together to increase a sense of form and function in active use parks. Such parks should also include washrooms, electrical outlets, benches and safe, pedestrian‐friendly pathways, etc. The Town should continue to consider permanent or portable washroom facilities at heavily utilized park and trail locations as these conveniences can attract a greater use by individuals and families. Fleury Park Project Compliance Features: 1. Using the proposed “Smart Vent” technologies could allow renovation of Fleury Park washroom. 2. The Fleury Park Project uses a “cluster model” approach and invites greater use of the park by individuals and families. The six multi-use play areas at Fleury Park conform to the cluster model. More play areas (courts) at Fleury would allow for more unstructured or pick-up tennis for the public.

13 Unstructured Recreation Areas People are seeking areas where they can enjoy park uses at their own time and convenience. Informal open spaces have been observed to be popular, particularly at the neighbourhood‐level for activities such as pickup field sports, picnicking, playing musical instruments, kite flying, etc. The key to the success of unstructured recreational areas is the flexibility that is afforded for the uses that can be pursued. These types of parks can bring people together to participate in physical activity, showcase cultural diversity through festivals and special events. Fleury Park Project Compliance Features: 1. The Fleury Park Playhouse would double the play time at this location for access to free, unstructured recreational players of volleyball, basketball, tennis, pickle ball. The Playhouse also supports cultural diversity through festival and special events.

Parks & Recreation Master Plan 2010
5.4 Parkland Acquisition (page 46)
In addition to the park land acquisition process, the Town should also investigate parkland renewal and redevelopment opportunities at its existing parks. For example, redevelopment opportunities at urban parks (i.e. Confederation Park, Lions Park, or any lands becoming available in other urban areas, etc.) can be oriented to respond to neighbourhood and community‐specific demands such as urban parks, plazas and squares in addition to traditional parkland facilities. Fleury Park Project Compliance Features: 1. The Fleury Park Project core feature is the renewal and redevelopment as Fleury Park is an existing venue.

Implementing the Plan: (page 76)Cost Implications
Use Courts

Recommendations – Tennis, Basketball and Multi-use Courts 83. The Town should provide new multi‐use courts within newly developing residential areas, wherever appropriate, in order to provide sufficient access to these facilities. A minimum of two new courts is encouraged by the end of the Master Planning period to address underserviced existing residential areas. High Priority: (page 76)
Fleury Park Project Compliance Features:

Outdoor Aquatics

1. The Plan calls for a minimum of two new courts for EXISTING underserviced residential areas. The two additional courts at Fleury Park, then enclosed would double playable time at Fleury Park from May to September.

Cost Comparison:
Fleury Park Playhouse and Angus Glen Tennis Centre Scope: In order to provide a basis for comparative costs, the following data were obtained from a Markham staff report presented to the Markham Council General Committee re: the Angus Glen Tennis Centre, a tennis-only facility built in July 2011. The Angus Glen Project included building four courts and a structure covering the four courts. The proposed Fleury Park Playhouse project includes building two additional courts to add onto the four existing ones, as well as a covered structure over all six courts. Summary: Bid price for the Angus Glen Tennis Centre ………………………………………………………. $3,352,895.77 Consideration: The Angus Glen Tennis Centre included four courts at an estimated cost of $125,000 each, totalling $500,000 ($125,000 X 4) Had they built six courts, their cost would have been 50% higher i.e. $750,000 (1.5 X $500,000) Consideration: The Angus Glen Tennis Centre project included a clubhouse that cost a total of $996,000. Thus, without the cost of their clubhouse, the cost of their four tennis courts and the building covering them was $2,356,895 ($3,352,895 - $996,000). Without the cost of their tennis courts, the cost of just the building covering them was $1,856,895 ($2,356,895 - $500,000) If the Angus Glen Tennis Centre had built a covered structure to envelop six courts, the cost would be 50% higher, i.e. $2,785,342 (1.5 X $1,856,895) Thus, based on the Angus Glen project costs, the projected cost for the proposed Fleury Park Playhouse would be $3,035,342, to build only two tennis courts ($250,000) plus a structure to cover six courts ($2,785,342). Consideration: The proposed Fleury Park Playhouse structure will be built with less expensive materials resulting in two builder’s quotes of approximately $1,300,000 (see attachment) which is considerably less than the projected cost of $2,785,342 for the Angus Glen project, had their structure been built to cover six tennis courts. Conclusion: The above cost comparison with the Angus Glen project validates the estimated cost for the Fleury Park Playhouse of $1,300,000. The overall estimated total cost of $2,000,000 to $2,500,000 for the Fleury Park project is clearly more realistic than the $8,000,000 plus estimate provided by Town staff.

This is a solely Town Owned Recreational Asset that generates revenue to recover its costs with an 8 month winter operation. The four summer months would allow free public access just as in the past except the venue is now weather proofed. Thus the number of free public play hours is effectively doubled for the four summer months. As is current standard practice groups or individuals, play space time will have to be booked with the Town.

As requested I have completed an estimated cost for your facility and the highlights are as follows: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Location is Aurora ON. Building size is 120' x 350' x 20' eave height. Ridge line is offset (70'/50') to maximize solar area. End wall facing amphitheatre is set in 50' to provide a 3 sided covered area for amphitheatre guests. Framed openings (16' x 16') in bays 1, 3, 7, 8, 12 and 14 on both side walls for Sunshine doors. I would propose that these side doors have dormer shaped frame and sheeting to enhance the look. It would make it look more like an building of fine arts instead of an industrial shop. This estimate includes the structure, insulation, setup, double man doors, sunshine doors etc. Includes stamped drawings for the structure and B1 schedules only. Estimated cost for summer construction $1.34 m.
