Dear CLRC members and friends,
Curious about the results of the recreation center survey that was circulated in May and June? You can find out what those survey results were by attending an open-house meeting on Wednesday evening at the food bank.
The survey was sparked by the Arvada City Council setting aside $3.1 million in its 2013/2014 budget for a recreation facility near the Garrison Street park. The recreation center, if it is built, is intended to serve the neighborhoods that were once served by the Fisher pool and the adjacent recreation facility that used to house an ice skating rink.
During the five-week survey period approximately 300 surveys were collected and turned over to our consultant for tabulation. And it’s those results that should be available on Wednesday night. The meeting will have an open-house format, but there may also be some short presentations.
The meeting will also be a chance to put questions to City staff and to fill out comment cards on what you believe are our neighborhood’s most important recreational needs.
The gathering will be held at the Arvada Community Food Bank at 8555 W 57th Avenue on Wednesday, July 24th at 6:00 pm. All are welcome and you can bring your children with you. We’ll be meeting in the food donation sorting area, so we do ask that you supervise your children while you are there.
WHERE TO FIND OUT MORETo find out more about the importance of the survey in a question-and-answer format, have a look at our earlier CLRC article at
The Citizens for a Livable Ralston Community regularly posts information on its website at http://www.ralstoncommunity.org/ as it becomes available. Or you can friend us on Facebook. Our Facebook name is “CLRC Arvada”.
