The city has scheduled two forums to allow for public input on plans for the regional community recreation center planned for construction at Fort Trumbull. The City Council has approved $30 million in bonding for the project and a community center task force last month reviewed options for the facility presented by Silver/Petrucelli + Associates, the architects for the project. Silver/Petrucelli has recommended a two-story, 62,000-square-foot building to be constructed on nearly 7 acres at Fort Trumbull. City officials have said operational costs for the new community center, estimated to be $2.1 million per year, would be funded in part through membership fees and rental income. Membership fees are expected to be based on a sliding scale to allow access to lower-income residents.
