The Vancouver Park Board will be holding a special public meeting Monday night on a plan to make community centre revenue across the city more equitable.
The plan would see community centres pooling surpluses to help out a handful of centres in less affluent neighbourhoods.
Park Board Staff say patrons of those centres can't afford to pay the same rates charged at other centres, creating a discrepancy in revenue.
Staff will provide an update on the plan at the meeting.
But some community centres say revenue sharing won't work.
The Hillcrest Community Centre Association says they've collected fifty-thousand dollars to fight the proposal.
That centre is located near Queen Elizabeth Park, and was used as the curling venue for Vancouver's 2010 Olympic Games.
