Items of Interest from the ANC 4C Meeting — 3/9/10

March 10, 2010

Of the many items on the ANC 4C agenda last night, two struck me as being of interest to the broader community.

The first was the community planting project planned for Sherman Circle. What I think is particularly interesting about this project is the goal to restore the park to its original design. The next meeting for this initiative is March 16th.

The second item of interest was the project to rebuild the Raymond Recreation Center. Architects from the firm OPX Architects were on hand to show preliminary site plans and describe where the project is in development.

The Raymond Rec Center is located north of the Raymond school and bounded by 10th Street to the west, Quincy to the north, and 9th Street to the east. The plan is to build a new structure that is an addition to the school and can be used by the school during its hours of operation. The structure would also likely include a gymnasium for both school and public use.

The main entrance to the rec center would be on the 10th street side, and it would be a multi-level building to address the terrain and handicap accessibility issues. Outside of the functions of the structure, the architects did not present any plans on the appearance of the building.

The park portion of the rec center is currently scheduled to include basketball and tennis courts and be accessible to the public after school hours and on weekend. The estimated time line for the project is for the groundbreaking to commence around October 2010 with completion being around November 2011.

It will be interesting to see how a newly renovated Raymond Rec Center impacts the nearby Park View Rec Center’s activities.
