By request I have created a category for the Rec Center since the topic will continue to be of interest. I've been knocking on a few B'game doors the last few weekends and I can tell you it comes up way more often than a few of the Council challengers' pet topics.
Here is an older post on the topic for some context. And here is the Master Plan for a po$$ible new center from the City's web site. By the way, I believe there are openings on the Park & Rec Commission if you are interested in getting more involved. The current commissioners are here.
