Possible New Rec Center for Northglenn

Residents Sought for Project Advisory Group

Following the April 2017 approval of Northglenn’s Civic Center Master Plan, the City of Northglenn has begun the Facility, Programming & Staffing Assessment to explore the possibility of a new recreation center, senior center and theater.

Public outreach during the Civic Center Master Plan process showed strong support for these new facilities and a desire for a new “downtown."

Assessment
This assessment begins phase one of implementing the Civic Center Master Plan. It will include an in-depth analysis of facilities, programming and staffing of the current and future recreation amenities in anticipation of a new multi-use facility on the civic center campus. The size and features of the proposed multi-use facility will ultimately be determined based on public input and project budget.

A key step will be understanding the program needs and desires of our changing community. Ultimately, the recommended facility and programs will be assessed to determine a sustainable approach for staffing, maintenance and operations.

Public Input
The public input process will occur between September 2017 and February 2018. The assessment project has an anticipated completion date of March 2018.
Opportunities to provide input and feedback will include focus groups, an online questionnaire and open houses.
Specific meeting dates will be announced mid-August and in the September Connection.

Project Advisory Group
A small advisory group is being formed to provide ongoing input for this project. The purpose of the committee will be to take information collected from City Council, public meetings and the consultants. They will work together as a team to study the input and alternatives, and make recommendations to help guide how we proceed with the project.

The committee will meet for a series of five four-hour workshops on Wednesday evenings between September and January.
If you would like more information about serving on this project advisory group please contact Amanda Peterson at apeterson@northglenn.org or 303.450.8950.
