Hi:
I will appreciate if someone can give me information about the following:
a) What is the current expected opening date of the new Recreation and Aquatic Center at the intersection of Preston and Wade?
b) What would be the approximate fees for individual membership (and family) for a year? I am asking this so that I make a decision between this and other fitness facilities in the area. Any ballpark number will be great.

Appreciate your response.
Satish

Satish,

Thank you for your note regarding the new recreation and aquatic center.

As you know, the center is currently under construction and we anticipate that the construction will be complete with opening of the center to take place in the fall of 2007. We will not know the exact date for another several months as construction continues.

The cost for individual and family passes for at the center have not yet been identified. We anticipate taking this information to the City Council within the next 1-2 months. I do believe that our fees will be very competitive to the surrounding area and comparable facilities.

Please feel free to let me or our staff know if you have any additional questions.

Thanks again for your interest.

Now that time has passed, do you have more info on the opening date or fees? Also, I missed the last few Town Hall meetings. Can you fill me in on the facilities at the Aquatic/Rec Center? I could not find this info on the website.

Thank you so much for putting the site plans for parks on there!

Kevin,

Thanks for your note regarding an update on the new recreation and aquatic center.

Construction on the facility is progressing on schedule and as previously mentioned, the center should be completed in the fall of 2007. As the contractor continues his construction activities for the next several months we will have a clearer picture of when a proposed opening date will be.

Fees for the center are currently under analysis and we hope to discuss these with the City Council within the next few months.

As far as the facilities that will be available at the center, the following link will take you to a detailed listing of facilities that will be available at the new recreation and aquatic center.

We also are trying to get additional graphics onto our web site as soon as we can.

Should you have any additional questions, please let me or our staff know.

Thanks again for your note and interest.
