Thanks to the large group of representatives from community organizations who came out for the Recreation and Park Commission Capital Committee hearing on September 4, 2019 to support the concept design for a new Gene Friend Recreation Center. Our item was not heard by the Commission until over 90 minutes into the agenda, and folks were patient and stuck around.
The Capital Committee was very enthusiastic about the design and asked that we repeat the full presentation of conceptual design for approval to the full Recreation and Park Commission on Thursday, September 19.
Community members again showed up in support of the project and, on September 19, the full Recreation and Park Commission approved the concept design for the project.
At this point, Rec and Park staff are working to confirm a funding plan for construction. Please stay tuned for more updates as we have them.
Also, as a reminder, this update and lots of previous updates and background info can be found on the project page of the Rec and Park website.
