Re: New Proposal recommended on Council Agenda, June 10, 2008
The recommendation on the agenda for June 10, 2008 has been discussed at length by the Park & Recreation Board and was
presented and denied by City Council last November 2007. The proposal is being presented again as Recreation Staff plans for the fall
season and it has been brought to our attention that the Gerdin Conference Center dividers will not be completed until January 2009.
The proposal was approved for recommendation by the Park & Recreation Board at our last meeting on June 5, 2008.
Discussion included the following:
Our busiest time for the entire Recreation Center is Monday-Friday from 4:00-9:00PM. This is the time when public wants recreation

On Mondays, Dance class takes up Full B because it is the only tile floor room in the facility. On Tuesdays & Thursdays, Driver’s
Education takes up Full C for its class needs. Some overflow fitness programs are scheduled in Room A and the Gerdin Conference
Center. Space is limited depending on the night and the number of programs offered.
Full Room; which seats (40), we have a total of (4) Rooms:
Room A, Room B, Room C, Recsters Room
Half Room; seats (20), we could have a total of (7) Rooms:
Room A, B, B1, C, C1, Recsters East, Recsters West
