Help Design Our Multi-generational Community Center

This spring, residents and park users will play a large role in determining the features that could be included in a future multigenerational community center. Through hands-on exercises, participants will work together to determine solutions that can address multiple community needs and/or priorities for indoor recreation.

On Wed., March 6 at 6:30 p.m. in the Council Room at Town Hall, Brownsburg Parks and consultants will present an overview of how we have gotten to this point, including a review of data that has been collected over the last several years on indoor recreation needs and how the pre-design process works. During this interactive meeting, attendees will answer key questions to help the design team determine priorities for the facility leading into our design charrette in April. We’ll offer child care to make participating easier for busy parents. More information about child care arrangements will be released closer to the meeting date.

Charrette

In April, we’ll host a series of three meetings as part of the design charrette. With the participant’s voice at the forefront in the decision-making process, our consultant team consisting of designers and architects will take notes and create rough concepts of the facility design. The concepts will be shared the following night for additional feedback. We invite participants to come back each evening to get a firsthand look at how their input helped shape the facility design process.

These meetings will be at 6:30 p.m. on April 23, 24 and 25 at the Brownsburg Fire Territory headquarters (470 E. Northfield Dr.).

I hope community members of all ages will participate in what I believe will be an informative, fun experience that produces a facility Brownsburg can be proud of!

On behalf of the Park Board and Brownsburg Parks staff, we look forward to seeing you this spring!
