Parks Board Hard At Work For the Community

Parks Board pictured left to right: Patrick Crawford, Jeff Datkuliak, Christie Sheets, Bob Pontius, and Houston Morgan

Over the past year-plus, the board has assisted the city administration in undertaking and completing a Parks & Recreation Master Plan, and a Feasibility Study for a multi-generational community 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 has provided the City and the Parks and Recreation Board with key data and information on the market and demand for services, operational costs, and the capital investment needed for potential construction. The results of the study will now assist the City and the Parks and Recreation Board in determining the next step for a community/recreation center for Stow. 

 

The Parks Board is also assisting the administration in prioritizing parks and facilities capital improvements projects for 2023, and is working on a much broader capital improvements plan for parks and facilities for the next ten years. There is much work to do, and these dedicated individuals have committed to their time and effort to get it done!
