The Town of Brighton is conducting a Community and Recreation Center Feasibility Study to assess residents’ need and desire for a facility that could expand existing activities and offer a broader range of new programs. The Town wants to hear residents and business owners’ thoughts on a variety of facility and programming options, including building or renovating a new facility or providing services through partnerships with private facilities.
“The Town of Brighton is a healthy, diverse and vibrant community that continues to grow,” said Town Supervisor William Moehle. “As the community thrives and changes, it is important to evaluate the recreation needs of all our residents so we can grow together. The study and accompanying survey will provide us with vital information and insight regarding our community’s recreation needs.”
Brighton’s current Recreation Department and Senior Center have been in the former Brookside school for more than 40 years. Generations of residents have enjoyed programs, events, sports, games and camps here year-round. Residents, town staff, and administration have considered whether the current facilities can support the range of multigenerational activities desired by Brighton residents, with various studies recommending a centralized Community and Recreation Center.
The survey will determine the residents’ thoughts on programs and events that enrich us physically, emotionally and socially and if the current programs and facilities meet the needs of all Brighton residents.
