City to conduct feasibility study for a future multi-generational facility

Chandler City Council approved a nearly $75,000 contract with a vendor to begin a feasibility study for a multigenerational recreation center in the city.
The contract was awarded to GreenPlay LLC on Dec. 12.
The city conducted a senior needs assessment last year to help guide decisions related to planning services, facilities and programs for residents age 55 and over—a population that has steadily increased in Chandler over the last 15 years, according to city records.
The city determined the existing Chandler Senior Center alone is "unlikely to sufficiently address the needs of Chandler's population over 55 years of age in the future."
The contractor's scope of work includes community engagement, user demand and site research, financial analysis and facility needs planning. The project completion time is 180 days following notice to proceed.
