South Suburban seeks public input for new recreation complex

South Suburban seeks public input for new recreation complex

Sep 06 2018

South Suburban Parks and Recreation (SSPR) is planning a new recreation complex, which is proposed to include a fieldhouse, ice arena, gymnasium with Pickleball courts and district administration offices. An architect and contractor to design and build the complex have been hired.  Perkins + Will is the architect leading the design team, and Adolfson & Peterson (AP) Construction is the construction manager/general contractor.

The new facility will be nearly 200,000 square-feet. It will be built just southwest of East County Line Road, and South Holly Street. The complex is expected to open in December 2020. The estimated project cost is $50 million. The project will replace the 50-year old South Suburban Ice Arena and the South Suburban Administration Office.

SSPR wants ice, court and field users, as well as the general public to provide input on the new facility. The public is invited to attend two open house-style public input meetings at Goodson Recreation Center. Come learn about the facility and provide input on the proposed plans.

The public can attend the open houses at Goodson Recreation Center anytime between the hours shown below:

Tuesday, September 18, from 1-3 p.m., Room 8

Thursday, September 20, from 6-8 p.m., Room 5
