The Vancouver Park Board, facing litigation from six community centre associations, is seeking to show their respective boards the door and replace them with volunteers willing to work with its commissioners.
Commissioner Niki Sharma said Thursday there would be a transition period through year-end where Park Board staff would continue to work alongside the associations’ volunteers, who oppose the OneCard community centre pass.
But when that ends, it’s going to need volunteers for six community centres — Killarney, Kensington, Kerrisdale, Hastings, Sunset and Hillcrest.
According to lawyer Sharma the associations are claiming a 50% stake in the community centres.
