Approval for the Five Year Capital Improvement Plan for Parks and Recreation
The Parks and Recreation Director along with input from the Parks, Recreation and Tree Board, Commissioners, and various leagues and organizations has put together a very aggressive Five Year Capital Improvement Plan. This plan lists the most vital components in the first five years. In the first couple of years there will be an investment in design of what is proposed with the exception of the two smaller projects.
In the first five years, we propose to pave the area by the Dog Park and Harry Sacks Field. The first five years will also see the installation of lights and poles on the upper soccer field and new lights installed on the existing poles for the middle soccer field. The lowest field would remain dark for a few more years. We will see the design for a recreation center to be built by the walking trail on Old Dixie Highway. A recreation center, unlike our Community Building would offer a gymnasium, exercise room, outside stage for bands and concerts and other activities to be decided during the planning stages. This building is a must to serve our growing community. The recreation center will serve the purpose of offering recreational opportunities to the residents of Lady Lake and not necessarily room rentals. I have not added any projects for a second five years as I anticipate a shift of some of these projects into that category.
