Pitt Meadows Family Recreation Centre Reopens Later This Afternoon
Early this morning, the City received notification that the Pitt Meadows Family Recreation Centre (PMFRC) had sustained water leaks. The building was closed while staff investigated. The Discovery Playhouse Daycare and the Preschool were closed and families were notified. The Community Policing Office did not experience any leaks but was closed as a precaution.
It was determined that the source of the roof leak is a buildup of ice along the edge of the roof on the east side of the building. The area specifically affected is the daycare and the hallway section adjacent to the daycare. The leak has been repaired and clean up in the daycare is underway. The daycare and preschool are expected to be closed for the remainder of today and tomorrow. The administration of Discovery Playhouse will contact the families directly by end of day Wednesday with any further updates.
The PMFRC will be reopened later this afternoon, at 3:00 pm with all drop-in programs and services running as per the regular schedule. The City’s registered afterschool programs will be relocated today to Pitt Meadows Elementary School. Children will be picked up as usual and parents have been notified about the change of location and pick up details.
