People want Indoor Track, Gym inside Renovated Plymouth Creek Center
Flash vote survey results gave the city council more of an idea what residents would like to see inside a renovated and expanded Plymouth Creek Center
The numbers show people would like an indoor walking track, gymnasium and an indoor playground. They also indicated interest for STEM programming as well as senior programming. You can read the full results here.
The City Council will not put a referendum for the renovation on the November ballot. Some pointed out it would only add to the cost for the estimated $50 million project.
Plus, city council members remarked they’ve had robust public feedback along the way. One city staff member said the open house turnout has been “phenomenal” with more than 300 people attending.
Council member Jim Willis was the lone voice for a referendum. He said a vote should be warranted for a project that could serve future generations and come with a higher price tag.
“I’m cautious that if we’re spending that kind of money for this particular facility, then a referendum is needed to give us the level of confidence that I will feel comfortable in that we are making the right decision,” said Willis.
Final plans for the renovation and a cost are expected to be ready for council review by September.
