Input Sought for Facility Needs

April 17, 2023

The City of Cedar Rapids is gathering public input between April 17 through June 6 on recreation, sports, and community center needs. The City is working with CSL International to conduct a feasibility study for a dual-use intergenerational center and sports complex in Cedar Rapids. The project is one of the action steps identified as part of the Age-Friendly Action Plan adopted in 2022, as a way to bring together residents of all ages and abilities for healthy activities and social connectedness. The study is anticipated to be completed by September.

“We are excited to hear what the public wants for indoor community, recreation and sports facility spaces to enhance a quality parks and recreation system,” said Hashim Taylor, Parks and Recreation Director. “This study will help identify ways that we can meet the community’s needs now and for the next generation. We value and seek feedback and encourage everyone to participate.”

CSL recently met with community stakeholders and sports industry representatives to gain insight into current resources and opportunities within the market area. The study’s next step is to receive broad public feedback through an online survey.

The survey can be accessed at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/6XBR2GT or through a QR code shared on the City's website and social media channels. Feedback will also be accepted at the Downtown Farmer's market Saturday, June 3, from 7:30 a.m. to Noon and at facilities such as the Northwest Recreation Center and Cedar Rapids Public Library.
