Facility Expansion
 

We are excited to share with you some new possibilities because of our growth and prosperity.  Data collected over the past five years overwhelmingly support expansion of programming and facilities. Specific facility needs are a multi-use field house, fitness areas to include an indoor walking track, group exercise rooms, and an area for weight lifting, community rooms, and staff office space. As a part of making our main campus located at 705 Aspen Drive a community hub, we have started to explore options for constructing a building that would better meet the needs.

General information community meetings will be held on the following dates, times, and locations.

  • May 5, 5:00 PM at Grand Mountain School

  • May 12, 5:00 PM at King Elementary School

We invite you to visit our Facility Expansion webpage located on our website. The webpage will be updated regularly with new information as we move through this process.
