Flower Mound officials will hold two meetings Jan. 30 to solicit input on a couple of projects.

Possible improvements to the Community Activity Center and the town’s economic development strategic plan are on the agenda. The meeting about the CAC will be held from 6:30-8 p.m. at the center, located at 1200 Gerault Road. The economic development strategic plan meeting will be held from 5:30-7 p.m. at Fire Station No. 1, 3911 S. Broadway Ave.

The details

A feasibility study is being conducted for the CAC. Parks and Recreation Director Chuck Jennings said in an email the center is approaching 16 years old, and is undersized and missing certain amenities typically found in newer recreation centers.

“This prompted staff and members of the parks board to inquire about the possibility of a renovation and expansion project,” he said. “As part of the 2017 Parks and Recreation Master Plan, the CAC was evaluated at a high level, and through that process, $22 million in improvements were recommended as part of the master plan.”

This new study seeks to re-evaluate the 2017 recommendations. Some amenities that could be implemented at the center include a larger fitness floor, additional group exercise rooms, larger ballrooms, additional gym space and a separate indoor pool geared more toward recreation, Jennings said.

The feasibility study is expected to be finished in late August.

What else?

At the economic development strategic plan meeting, residents may offer their input into what businesses they want to see come to town. Officials are working with a consultant on creating an economic development strategic plan, which will help guide officials on long-term economic health in the region.

The meeting will be structured in a facilitated roundtable discussion format, allowing for questions and answers between the consultants and the general public, Flower Mound Communications Director Melissa Demmitt said.

Consultants will collect data from the public using the Mentimeter app, which allows participants to answer questions anonymously on their phones with results displayed live on-screen, Demmitt said.

Officials expect the strategic plan to be finished within the May/June timeframe and be presented to council at a future meeting.
