The Decatur Recreation Center was designed and constructed in the late 1950s. Recreational programming has changed dramatically in the past 50 years. A master plan will identify changes needed in the building to meet current and future recreational program needs.
The public is invited to a meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 9, at 7 p.m. to discuss the future use of the Decatur Recreation Center. After mid-2009, the Recreation Center will no longer be used for high school athletics. This offers an opportunity to consider its future use, especially the 10,000 square foot gym. The City of Decatur has employed LP3 Architects to prepare a master plan, schematic design and cost estimates for the “Rec.” Decatur’s Active Living Department needs your help in planning how the building can be modernized to serve future community needs. The meeting will be held in the social room at the Decatur Recreation Center, 231 Sycamore St., in downtown Decatur.
