Public Invited to Learn about Proposed Recreation and Aquatic Center at June Events

Community members are invited to learn about the proposed recreation and aquatic center at one of two upcoming public meetings in June. The first opportunity is at the Planning Commission meeting on Wednesday, June 8, 6:00 p.m., at City Hall, 29799 SW Town Center Loop East in Wilsonville. The second opportunity is at a public Open House on Wednesday, June 29, 6:00-7:30 p.m., at the Parks and Recreation Admin. Building in Town Center Park, 29600 SW Park Place in Wilsonville.

At these meetings City leaders are presenting information about the proposed facility and available to answer questions from the public. At both meetings community members are also encouraged to share their feedback about the proposed center.

Based on public feedback and the recommendation of a citizen task force, the City Council is planning to advance a ballot measure for the November 2016 election a $30 million, 20-year capital bond to fund design and construction of the proposed recreation and aquatic center. If the bond measure is approved by voters, a home with an assessed value of $300,000 is estimated to see a property-tax increase of about $19 a month.

The approximate 80,000-square-foot facility is to include a variety of amenities for community members of all ages. The proposed center includes a warm-water pool suitable for water exercise activities and therapy classes for seniors and adults; an indoor 25-yard six-lane pool suitable for lap swimming, swim meets and other aquatics programs; and a 6,000-square-foot leisure pool with a slide and lazy river along with a whirlpool spa. The proposed year-round facility also includes a fitness center, two multi-purpose fitness classrooms, two full-size hardwood courts, an indoor walking track , a rock climbing wall and a large multi-purpose room for community meetings and other gatherings.

In 2014 the City contracted with The Sports Facilities Advisory, a firm that specializes in analyzing the financial viability of building and operating public athletic facilities. A 14-member community task force solicited input and provided feedback, from which the consultant produced a feasibility study. The task force reviewed the study before recommending approval to the City Council. The Council adopted the study in December 2014 and has instructed staff to develop a proposed ballot measure to design and construct a recreation aquatic center. The feasibility study is available for review at www.WilsonvilleParksandRec.com/WRAC. The financial feasibility analysis concluded a center would be operationally self-sustaining after a five-year start-up phase.

Community members who are not able to attend either the June 8 Planning Commission meeting or the June 29 Open House are invited to learn more about the proposed facility at www.WilsonvilleParksandRec.com/WRAC or call the Parks and Recreation Department at 503-783-7529.
