The following list are Major and Minor Capital projects currently underway:
Minoru Park Oval and Track
Artificial Turf Sportsfield Construction
On March 10th, 2008, City Council approved the construction of an artificial turf sportsfield in Minoru Park. This new field will be constructed inside of the track facility. Development is scheduled to begin during the last week of June 2008, with completion in October of this year.

Artificial Turf Project
On December 3rd, 2007, City Council approved the development of an artificial turf sportsfield at King George Park as a multi-use sports complex to meet the demands of a growing community.
At present, there are over 10,000 organized sports users competing for practise time for high quality sportsfields with lights.
The first phase will be relocating and removing trees during the winter season.
