Exciting times are coming to Burlingame. The Burlingame Parks and Recreation Department is pleased to announce it has been asked by the City Council to work on a Community Center Master Plan.
The current Recreation Center building was built in about 1948 as a dedication and memorial to those who gave their lives in WWII. Over the years it has been remodeled, expanded and repaired many times.
The goal is to develop a planning concept for a community center that will meet the needs of all members of all ages of the Burlingame community that will have a useful life well into the future.
The process will involve working with a professional consulting firm, community members and City staff. It will include several community and stakeholder meetings to identify facility and site needs and conclude with a final written report with a summary of the study findings, process and recommendations to the City Council.
It is anticipated the community meetings will begin in January 2013 and the process will end 7-8 months later.
The Park and Recreation Department is looking for dedicated community members who are interested in being part of the process. If you would be interested in participating, please contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 650-558-7300 and ask to be added to the Burlingame Community Center email notification list.
