Recreation Center Task Force
The application period for the Roxborough Village Rec Center Task Force closed on November 13th.
The community-based Recreation Center Task Force will meet several times between January-May 2021, and provide their recommendations on a rec center that meets the community’s needs and vision.
The Roxborough Village Metro District completed a long-range Master Plan process in 2019-2020. There was a great deal of interest from the community in exploring a recreation facility, and surveys were conducted that also indicated strong community support. Read more here in the recent Metro District Newsletter.
The Metro District board of directors has authorized preliminary studies to explore options and see what's possible and feasible for a rec center to serve the community. The Metro District board also authorized the formation of a Task Force of community members to look at options in-depth. This includes investigating facility features, design options, and financing.
No project has been approved. The Board of Directors and the Rec Center Task Force are focused on analyzing options and due diligence. The Metro District board of Directors will then decide whether to bring the funding question to Roxborough Village voters in an election, probably in November 2021. Voters will have the final say.
There will be many opportunities for the community to provide feedback and stay engaged in this process. Stay tuned!
