Operations Centre

The Town of East Gwillimbury is building a new Operations Centre facility. The new location will support important operational services for the Town including: 

  • Waste and infrastructure management
  • Roads
  • Winter maintenance 
  • Wastewater and water operations 
  • Parks operations and facility maintenance
  • Fleet Management 
  • Emergency Operations Centre
  • Fire and Emergency Services training space 

Council and Town staff are working to put in place responsible cost control measures by ensuring that this facility is primarily funded through development related charges as opposed to tax funding.

The new Operations Centre will re-locate all work out of the current site located in Sharon to a more appropriate location on Woodbine Ave. north of Doane Rd. with quick access to Highway 404. The current site and facilities are insufficiently sized to provide the appropriate support for staff. The new facility will look to provide sufficient space for storage of vehicles, equipment and materials, meeting rooms, lunch rooms, washrooms and change room facilities. The Operations Centre will also provide a centralized environment that supports cooperation between Town departments and external agencies.

 Over the past 24 months various work has taken place on site including but not limited to: 

  • Demolition, clearing, access to road and gate install 
  • On-site storage for materials 
  • New municipal address 
  • Tree inventory, preservation and planting 
  • Environmental assessment 
  • Hydrology and groundwater study 
  • Storm water management plan
  • Site plan approval
  • Tender ready drawings & specifications
  • Award of contract earthworks, grading & storm water management


Next Steps:

  • Earthworks, Grading & Storm Water Management
  • Facility Construction Procurement 
  • Award of Facility Construction Contract
  • Facility Construction
