THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS (December 8, 2016) – The Woodlands Township Board of Directors held a regular meeting Wednesday, November 30, 2016, at The Woodlands Township Town Hall, 2801 Technology Forest Boulevard, at 6 p.m.
In October 2016, the Board of Directors authorized the utilization of the Parks and Recreation Capital Projects Fund to pay for property acquisition costs of $4.5 million for the facility formerly known as the YMCA at Creekside Park. During Wednesday night’s meeting, the Board of Directors approved the final Purchase and Sale Agreement with the YMCA of the Greater Houston Area for the purchase of the tracts of land located in Harris County, Texas, containing the building and other structures.
The Board accepted a motion to adopt the proposed Operational and Business Plan and related 2017 budget amendments as presented. The new facility will operate as a second recreation/community center in The Woodlands, mirroring the current hours of The Woodlands Recreation Center to provide programs, fitness, events, etc. The plan addresses staffing and administrative concerns, proposed marketing efforts and program emphasis for recreation and non-recreation uses. Staff will prepare several naming options for the facility and will present them to the Board of Directors for consideration in February 2017. The facility is undergoing capital improvements and renovations and is expected to open before summer 2017.
The Board also took time to honor The Woodlands High School Cross Country’s recent state championship with a proclamation recognizing the team’s 36 district titles, 32 regional titles and now 19 state titles.
