[ARCHIVED] Residents invited to participate in Community Center Public Meeting

Blue Springs, Mo. – The City Council and Park Commission invite residents to participate in a hands-on meeting designed to gather input on the community’s “hopes, dreams and costs.” The meeting is Tuesday, December 11, 6:30 p.m. at the Blue Springs Freshman Center, 2013 NW Vesper Street. The meeting will be in the Commons area.

“Now is your chance to get involved and help us determine what kind of community center would be best for Blue Springs,” said Mayor Carson Ross. “Do we include a swimming pool? How big should the community center be? What kind of usage fees would make sense? Where could we build this facility?”

This meeting will feature facility option cards and story boards for participants to explore. Visitors will also be able to participate in a multi-voting exercise to narrow the list of optional amenities for a potential community center.

This public meeting is part of a feasibility study conducted by SFS Architecture partnering with Barker Rinker Seacat Architecture to examine options related to size, amenities, programming and community support. A final report, expected in April, will also include a market analysis, construction cost estimates, projected operating expenses and potential facility locations.

For more information on the feasibility study or other issues related to a potential community center, contact Dennis Dovel, Director of Parks & Recreation at (816) 228-0265.
