The City of Stow completed a Parks & Recreation Master Plan in 2022, and as part of that master planning process, almost 1,700 residents completed a community survey. In that survey, respondents were asked to prioritize their top four recreational amenities for their households. The amenity receiving the strongest support was a community center/recreation center.
As a result of this master plan and its public input process, the City engaged a consulting team to complete a feasibility study for a multi-purpose, multi-generational indoor facility. The feasibility study will provide the City with key data and information on the market and demand for services, develop operational costs, and determine capital investment needed for potential construction. The results of the study will assist the City in determining if a community/recreation center is feasible for our community, and if the data deems it is, what amenities and programs should be a part of the facility. The study should be completed in February.
