Strasburg Parks & Rec hosted a series of community meetings and focus groups to create a Strategic Plan for the District. As a result, we have finalized plans for the Community Recreation Center Expansion and Park Improvements. To fund this project, the District Board of Directors has voted unanimously to ask the community for a property tax increase this November.
There will be three (3) questions on the November ballot:
- 4D: Operations & Maintenance for the proposed improvements = $2.65 per month*
- 4E: Expansion of the Recreation Center = $7.22 per month*
- 4F: Expansion of the Recreation Center AND Park Improvements = $9.14 per month*
The proposed Community Recreation Center expansion will increase the size of the building from its current 3,000 square feet to 23,000 square feet. But this is more than your traditional Recreation Center! This COMMUNITY rec center expansion will allow for new programming space to emphasize the importance of art, music, and dance. It will give our teens and senior citizens a place to gather. It will provide a child watch area for parents that want to exercise. This COMMUNITY center will create a safe, positive recreational hub for the I-70 Corridor.
