Leaders in the Town of Superior have announced that they are considering a proposed community center design plan. “We intend to present the idea to the community over the summer and, based on their feedback, determine whether to place an item on the November ballot for voters to consider,” says Mayor Clint Folsom. The proposed community center would be owned and operated by the town but attached to the Superior Sports Stable, affording the community a unique partnership not found anywhere else in the region-- and do so at a cost significantly less than constructing an independent facility from the ground up. Trustee Sandie Hammerly says, “Our community has been discussing options to provide a community center here for over 20 years. Many of the amenities shown in the design are the culmination of years of work and community input.”
The proposed design calls for a 30,000 square foot building addition with three floors of dedicated community space, including: aquatics for all ages, fitness and cardio equipment, as well as community gathering areas; meeting space and classrooms. The amenities included in the proposed design have been highlighted as top priorities by town residents in the town’s most recent community-wide indoor space needs survey. “It’s really unlike any other community center we’ve seen and could provide residents an opportunity to select the level of services desired through a partnership with programs and facilities already offered at the adjacent Sports Stable such as indoor soccer baseball, ice sports, yoga, pickleball and indoor golf,” says Patrick Hammer, Superior’s Parks, Recreation and Open Space Director. The facility is estimated to cost around $19 million to design and construct, and between $700,000 and $800,000 annually to operate and maintain.
