REC DISTRICT UPDATE

A Public Forum for the Rec District will be June 29 at 5:30 PM in the MHHS Lloyd Schiller Gym. 

Fourteen architect firms submitted Statements of Qualifications to the WECRD for consideration by the Construction Task Force. After reviewing the fourteen statements, the CTF selected four firms to present a comprehensive plan for the development of a recreation facility to meet the needs of Mountain Home. Each of the four firms had an opportunity to meet with the CTF to display a design and be interviewed by the committee. After all four presentations, the CTF ranked the firms and presented their recommendation to the WECRD Board. The WECRD Board approved the recommendation, and the CTF entered into negotiations with LCA Architects to become the architect for the WECRD.

 

LCA Architects have considered all of the recommendations of the WECRD and YMCA as well as reviewing previous surveys of the community to design a recreation facility that responds to those needs and stays within the WECRD budget. The final design will be available for the public to view soon. After a cost has been projected, the Capital Campaign will begin, but the goal is yet to be determined.

 

The plan for approximately 25,000 sq. ft. with gyms, cardio/weight room, multipurpose room, game room, locker rooms, offices, and a child watch area is being designed with the budget of $4.8 million in mind.

 

The community support has been extraordinary, and the community recreation center for all ages is becoming a reality.
REC DISTRICT UPDATE

 

Since the end of 2013, the WECRD and YMCA have been working with members of the Mountain Home community to create a Construction Task Force (CTF) to select an architect for the proposed recreation facility.

After reviewing the fourteen statements, the CTF selected four firms to present a comprehensive plan for the development of a recreation facility to meet the needs of Mountain Home.
