It will take a lot of signs on 101 to cover 35 million.

All Bruce Dickinson has to say is this: what's dumber than a bag of hammers? 35 million dollars in extra debt for a new rec center. Like I said in my other post, dumb is a four letter word.

The Daily Journal is noting:

The Parks and Recreation Commission will hold a meeting at the current recreation center Thursday night (meaning TONIGHT) to review the goals identified in previous planning phases, discuss the updated building program and provide input on design strategies and architectural styles, among other issues, according to a city report.

Parks and Recreation Director Margaret Glomstad said in an email that residents should be encouraged to join the conversation about the new layout for the project.

“Tomorrow will be the first step for the community to participate in the community center conceptual design process. The presentation will include a brief background to bring attendees up to date and then the opportunity to provide input on design qualities,” she wrote Wednesday.

A year earlier, the Parks and Recreation Department began working with Group 4 Architects on a master plan design for the recreation center. A team formed from city staff and the architectural team, as well as a community advisory committee. Focus group meetings were also held with seniors, the Lions Club, teens, neighbors and members of the school community.

Through the feedback process, the community expressed interest in connecting the center to Washington Park, making it more accessible by walking, driving and biking, increasing its visibility from downtown and the Caltrain station, minimizing traffic and parking impact on surrounding neighborhoods and providing better safety for the playground, among other issues.

I'll make an all new post where there is something all new. In the meantime:

New Rec facilities on the horizon

The historic Pacific Rod & Gun Club got shut down today after being open for 86 years.

However, in 12 months the 14 acre Park & Rec property on Lake Merced may come back with a broader use, including other recreation uses like a Dog Agility course and Archery Range. We'll see.

I shot a solid majority out of 50, it was a blast.
