What is YOUR Vision? Creating Community at the Recreation Center
For Immediate Release: October 26, 2016
Contact: 'Andra Lorenz, (650) 286-3215, alorenz@fostercity.org

The City Council is studying options for enhancing public space and maximizing its recreation program options through the upgrade, expansion or rebuilding of the current Recreation Center. An important part of the process is to hear from the Foster City public about what it likes, what it uses, what it would use and how it would like the facility to integrate and continue to be an important part of the community experience now and into the future.

Do you take classes at the Recreation Center? Attend meetings? Attend movie or game events? What would you do if new activities were offered? Take these opportunities to tell the City what you'd like to see in a Recreation facility:

  • Take the survey: www.fostercity.org/RecCenterSurvey
  • Attend a community meeting
    • Parks and Recreation Committee Meeting: November 2 at 6:30 PM
    • City Council Study Session: November 14 at 6:30 PM
    • Planning Commission Meeting: December 1 at 7:00 PM
    • Community Workshop: Coming January 2017

The City Council has established a Recreation Center Master Plan Community Ad Hoc Subcommittee to work with the Parks and Recreation Committee to guide the outreach necessary for the program. This group will be interacting with the community on an on-going basis throughout the term of the project.

The current Recreation Center has been in use for over 40 years and is experiencing a number of significant maintenance issues. In order to continue to utilize the existing facility, the City will be required to make a major investment in upgrades. Before doing so, the City Council has determined to assess the current and future needs of the community to determine whether major upgrades or replacement of the building is the best use of the space. At the conclusion of this phase of the study, a Recreation Center Master Plan will be developed to guide future action.
