Community Recreation Center Information

The Community Recreation Center planning process has resumed with several public meetings about a potential Community Recreation Center (CRC). A CRC was identified as the top priority in the Parks, Recreation, and Open Space Master Plan (PROS). 

The CRC planning process has been guided by numerous surveys, focus groups, and meetings over the years, and it is imperative this continues as the CRC plan evolves. As such, the City is hopeful you can attend the workshop and share your perspective. 

Thank you for your continued interest and input in the potential Grand Junction Community Recreation Center. In the City's ongoing effort to engage and inform the community, the City is continuing to move forward with public participation and welcomes you and your direct input at upcoming public workshops.

Past Meetings

Community Recreation Center Public Workshop - June 14, 2022

The Community Recreation Center Feasibility Study Presentation (PDF) was given during a public workshop on June 14, 2022, which followed a series of focus groups earlier in the day. A statistically valid survey was conducted in February 2022 by professors from Colorado Mesa University. This indicated support for a CRC. The survey, described in the above presentation, is now driving the evolving plan. The focus groups and workshops are also critical to informing and strengthening the CRC plan.

In this presentation, there were three site options to consider.

Option 1: Community Recreation Center at Matchett Park
Option 2: Community Recreation Center at Lincoln Park on the existing footprint of the outdoor pool
Option 3: Hybrid - Slightly smaller Community Recreation Center at Matchett Park with modernization and renovation of the Lincoln Park-Moyer Pool.
