The City of High Point’s Parks and Recreation Department is attempting to “develop a vision” for the city’s new Center for Active Adults, which is meant for city residents over 50 years of age.
On Wednesday, July 26, the center planners will hold a public meeting to get some community input to help that process along.
The center will offer a variety of fitness and wellness activities, socialization programs and arts-based programs as well as other learning opportunities.
At the meeting, representatives from the contracted design companies – HH Architecture and Lifespan Design Studio – will be at the Roy B. Culler, Jr. Senior Center at 921 Eastchester Drive, (Suite 1230) between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. “to engage with current center patrons, staff and the public about the proposed center and hear more about their ideas and priorities.”
HH-Lifespan team members will host what they’re calling “conversation stations” focused on both indoor and outdoor activities and amenities. Those will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m., from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Anyone who would like to discuss options for the new facility is welcome to drop by at any of those times.
An interactive gallery of images depicting “cutting-edge active adult programs and examples of center amenities” will be on display for all three “conversations.”
The Parks & Recreation Department is also asking for public input from residents on the types of center-based activities and indoor and outdoor amenities the new center should offer.
There’s also a brief survey is available online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/J5WKQ7J through Friday, July 28.
In addition to being offered online, hard copies of the survey are available at the Culler Senior Center and all High Point recreation centers. Those who prefer to receive and respond to the survey by mail can call 336-883-3469.
