Demolition, planning continues ahead of anticipated January start on new Rec. and Aquatics Center

New Rec & Aquatics Center planning meeting

If you’ve driven down Lee Street in the past few weeks, you’ve probably noticed City of Enterprise crews hard at work at the site of the old Rec Center.  That will be a familiar sight throughout December, as crews prepare to demolish the M.N. “Jug” Brown building and clear the property for the new facility.

Construction on the new Enterprise Recreation and Aquatics Center is expected to start in January.  A preconstruction meeting between the City of Enterprise, Whaley Construction and our design firms Seay, Seay, & Litchfield Architects and Barge Design Solutions was held Monday to go over the timeline.

“This meeting is very important to define the project goals, clarify any outstanding questions, and align team efforts for this important city project,” City Engineer/Public Works Director Barry Mott said.

The new 110,000 sq/ft facility is expected to open late 2024.  Construction will tie into the existing Moose Hope Gym, which will also undergo renovations.

Crews are sorting materials during the demolition, to allow the city to reuse or recycle the items, limiting trips to the landfill and creating an eco-friendlier project.

“We want to be good stewards of the City of Enterprise and its citizens. Not only are we utilizing city employees for the demolition, but we are doing our best to recycle or reuse materials. It’s important to us to limit the waste in this project and to recycle as much material as possible into the new recreation center and other city projects,” Mott said.
