Open meeting to discuss future of Pagosa Lakes Recreation Center

Special to The SUN

The future of the Pagosa Lakes Recreation Center will be discussed at an open meeting on May 22 at 5:30 p.m.

The meeting will take place in the aerobics room of the recreation center, which is located at 45 Eagles Loft Circle.

The recreation center is now more than 25 years old. It has served us well, and the success of this community asset has helped us keep assessments low for all property owners by operating at a net profit.

Over the last number of years, part of the annual assessment has been set aside in a capital improvement fund dedicated to enhancing and improving this facility.

Elements of the heating and cooling system are past or approaching the end of their useful lives. Rather than just replace these elements, staff is looking to upgrade the facility to become more energy efficient, utilizing the latest technology.

This is a perfect opportunity to examine ways we can improve and expand the facility, enhance the experience, grow the membership and increase the revenue stream to serve all of the property owners, not just those that are rec center members. The money has been collected exclusively for this purpose. There will be no request for additional funding in this proposal, and it will not affect owner assessments or rec center membership fees.

Come and be a part of planning the center’s future on May 22.
