Description

City Councilor Don Harris is partnering with The City of Albuquerque’s Family and Community Services Department to construct and operate a larger facility at the east end of Singing Arrow Park to accommodate new programs and services.  The existing community center is a 5,000 square foot facility located at the west end of Singing Arrow Park. This joint use facility with Child Development is under-sized and does not lend itself well for the programmatic needs for the community.  It primarily provides before and after school programs for elementary school children.

In 2013, the City contracted with Sites Southwest to conduct a needs assessment study for a new community center in the Singing Arrow area.  The study concluded that “A new, expanded facility could serve more families and also potentially offer facilities such as a fitness room and classes for adults and teens in the nearby area.” The study also looked at three sites in the area and determined the East end of Singing Arrow Park site to be the most advantageous due to its proximity to lower median household income census blocks, access to the park and providing park safety, and adjacent parking.

The purpose of this public meeting is to meet with the architects for the project, Family and Community Services, the Department of Municipal Development, and City Council staff.  Please join us the evening of February 7th to provide input on the design of the proposed community center.  Light snacks will be provided.
