The results are in for the survey the City of Arvada did for the Apex Park and Recreation district on the best design for the $4.8 million facility to be built at Fitzmorris Park with shared parking with the Fitzmorris Elementary School. The survey also asked what features would be most useful in the adjacent park outside of the center. A total of 266 responses were received, and some of the neighborhood feedback was surprising.
The proposed facility is joint a partnership between the City and Apex, and it is one of six recreation projects on the Apex ballot this month. The bond issue is designed so that existing property taxes will not be increased. However, if the ballot issue fail, the facility is not likely to be built.
The survey report is only 11 pages and is in a pretty easy-to-read format. It’s shown here:
