A survey was conducted in January 2019 to gauge future interest and usage for indoor and senior recreation. With over 600 responses, this survey will help inform future stages of the project.
At its January 22 Regular Meeting, City Council created and made appointments to a Parks & Recreation Advisory Board for the Senior Center and Recreation Center Needs Assessment & Feasibility Study Project. (A recording of the 1/22/19 City Council Meeting is available here. The selection is item 9B.) This group will meet with stakeholders and City Staff and provide direction for future facilities.
This Parks & Recreation Advisory Board had a kick-off meeting with the project's consultants in early February to discuss an overview of the project and begin assigning priorities. Then on March 4, the board toured recreation and senior centers across the DFW area to see what features they would like to see in Pflugerville. Further meetings will prioritize these needs.
About the Project
The City of Pflugerville currently has one recreation center facility that has been open for eighteen years and serves the community in various ways. Whether it's members, class/program participants, senior citizen users or youth wanting a safe place to play basketball, the demands for space have exceeded the availability in our current facility.
The purpose of this project is to conduct a Needs Assessment and Feasibility Study for future Recreation and Senior Centers or a combined facility project. (These planning exercises are the only portion of the project that is approved and funded. Should funding become available for the design and construction of any new facility, the City may wish to engage the consultant selected through this RFQ process.)
Needs Assessment: Through public input and discussion with City staff and leaders, the goal is to identify if there is a need for any new facilities and what any should include and where they should be located.
Feasibility Study: If any facility is deemed needed, the next step is to develop a Preliminary Program for that facility, preliminary construction cost estimates and preliminary operations and maintenance cost estimates.
