Project Description

The City Council authorized a Recreation Center Master Plan Study as a component of the Fiscal Year 2016-2017 budget and established an Ad Hoc Subcommittee to guide a needs assessment. The needs assessment will include an extensive public outreach component as a first step in developing a Recreation Center Master Plan that will identify the issues and estimated costs associated with improving the existing recreation center or constructing a new recreation center to address the current and future recreation needs of the community. The findings of this study will serve as the basis for adding the project to a 5-Year Capital Improvement Program to be funded in the future.
