Cornell Precinct Plan update

In the fall of 2012, the CRA and the City of Markham hosted a joint event to present the updated Cornell Precinct Plan to the residents of Cornell. The City of Markham is now in the final phase of this project.

Petition to name Cornell’s new Community Centre & Library

East Markham 'Cornell' Community CentreWith the construction of a new community centre and associated library at Bur Oak Avenue and Church Street now underway, it has since come to the attention of the Cornell Rate Payers Association that this structure is currently being referred to as the “East Markham Community Centre and Library”.

In keeping with the naming tradition of the Town’s other community centres such as the Angus Glen, Milliken Mills, Markham Village, Box Grove, and Mount Joy Community Centres, a proposal has been put forth to replace “East Markham” with “Cornell”, with the resulting name being the “Cornell Community Centre and Library”.

In addition, given the rate of growth the Town of Markham has experienced over the years, the phrase “East Markham” is a most ambiguous term for many residents. In contrast, Cornell is a well-known area of Markham, and as such, is a community that is very identifiable and easily located. Renaming the community centre and associated library would therefore ensure that its location is more accurately conveyed to residents of the Town of Markham.
