Survey online for 2015 Oakley Rec Center renovation

Although the project is still at least two years away, the Cincinnati Recreation Commission (CRC) is seeking public input into the design of improvements at the Oakley Recreation Center, the next facility to be renovated as part of CRC's six-year plan.

Five preliminary designs have been developed for the project – one estimated to cost $5.6 million, the projected budget amount. The other four options, which include either expanding or moving both the community center and pool, would cost more.

The CRC has posted a short online survey asking for expectations and visions for the improvements, as well as any concerns related to the design process and future construction.

The Oakley Recreation Center is located on Paxton Avenue, near Hyde Park Plaza.
