District Projects - Current

ProjectProject Description
Civic Redevelopment

Since 2006, the District of Central Saanich has been exploring the feasibility of redeveloping civic buildings. The building that contains Municipal Hall, Fire Station 2, and the Police Station (located at 1903 Mt Newton Cross Road) and the facilities at Municipal Yard (located at 1703 Keating Cross Road) require replacement in the near future to address seismic and accessibility deficiencies and meet post-disaster standards. The sites are large and do not meet the best use of land for the community.
In 2023, a feasibility study began for the replacement or renewal of the Municipal Hall including Police Services and Fire Hall #2 and the Municipal Works Yard. The District of Central Saanich has commenced the process of acquiring a critical parcel of land on Hovey Road to support the goals of redeveloping civic facilities, including municipal offices, fire and police facilities, and possibly other community and recreation amenities.
