Avon Launches Community Survey for Feedback about ‘La Zona’
Design concepts include Recreation Center expansion and redevelopment of old fire station property
Avon, CO – The Town of Avon is seeking community feedback on new conceptual design plans for a Recreation Center expansion(s), redevelopment of the old fire station property, and connecting the Main Street Pedestrian Mall to Harry A. Nottingham Park. The project was coined ‘La Zona’ to represent the focal civic area of Town that acts as a transition from park space to mixed-use Town core.
Plans have been developed over the last several months and a public meeting was recently held to gauge feedback. The La Zona Survey includes visual design concepts by Norris Design, Barker Rinker Seacat and Toole Design. Concepts for the old fire station site include expanded park space, a skate park, or a multi-use event and community building. Recreation Center expansion options have been carefully designed to work with and enhance the existing facility. Options include, but are not limited to, the addition of a child watch area, expanded fitness and weight rooms, staff office space, revamped aquatics facility, and new water slides. Options for a multi-use, competition size aquatics expansion or indoor gymnasium are also being presented.
The survey is available now through March 10, takes approximately 15 minutes to complete, and is available in English and Spanish. You can find information about the project and take the survey at www.avon.org/lazona.
Those specifically interested in the Recreation Center portion of the project can also attend an upcoming open house at the Recreation Center, scheduled for February 17, 19, 20 and 23. Check www.avon.org/lazona for information and times.
Once the survey results are rendered, the Avon Town Council will discuss next steps for the project. For more information, contact Recreation Director Michael Labagh at (970) 748-4446 or Planning Director Matt Pielsticker at (970) 748-4413.
