CCRD and REC Public Meeting at CCHS
The Cañon City Area Recreation and Park District and REC (Recreation Enhances our Community) will host a public meeting on Tuesday August 6, 2019 at the Cañon City High School Auditorium at 6 pm. There will be two parts to this public meeting. We will begin at 6 pm with a 15 to 20-minute presentation about the Recreation District, reviewing history, facilities, programs, and our budget. That will be followed by a question and answer session. The goal is to provide transparency and receive feedback from the public on how they wish to have their public dollars used. The Recreation District wants to hear about what the people who live in the District want. The 53-year old swimming pool will be a part of this discussion.
This meeting will then lead into a presentation and discussion with REC. This is the group of citizens working on a future year-round recreation center. This is still very much in the planning stages, but the input of the public is absolutely needed. You will be able to ask questions and make suggestions about this project. Much like the District presentation, it is about what our community wants and ways we can achieve it.
We would encourage as many people as possible to attend this public meeting so we can determine the direction the community wants to take regarding recreation. Once again, the presentation will be at the Cañon City High School Auditorium, 1313 College Ave. Thank you to Cañon City Schools for letting us hold this meeting at the high school. We are not the first community in Colorado to have these open discussions, it is simply our turn.
