CIP LogoFast Facts
Total Project Budget: $10 million
Status: Design
Construction Begins: Early 2018
Expected Completion: Late 2018

About the Project
The existing recreation center could see new additions such as a therapy pool, expanded fitness areas and family locker rooms.

Outreach & Engagement
The City hosted four public meetings, several focus group meetings and online/paper surveys in August 2015 to obtain feedback about programming elements for the expansion of the existing center and the new recreation center. See the survey results from the over 800 community members who participated.
 
Top suggestions for the existing recreation center at 6060 E. Parkway Dr. included:
  • Locker room renovations and family locker rooms
  • Supporter/spectator space
  • Warm water (therapy) pool
  • Consideration that the size of the facility limits offerings
  • Improve building flow

Top requested amenities included:
  • Indoor leisure swimming pool
  • Weight/fitness areas
  • Walking/jogging track
  • Outdoor spray ground
  • Indoor lap lane pool

Youth sports and aquatics ranked as the two most important programs. Wellness, fitness and family activities were ranked very important by over half of respondents.
 
Next Steps
Design is underway and is expected to be completed by the end of 2017. Construction activities are planned to begin in early 2018 with a facility opening by the end of 2018.
