This study falls into two tasks. First is an analysis of the whole district to determine the best location for a larger regional recreation facility. The GIS study has located several desirable sites and one site was selected to consider the design of what a regional facility can look like. At the time of this report the design process has just begun but a most desirable location for the regional facility was identified and is in review by the District.
