City Capital Improvements
The Parks, Arts and Recreation Department has completed 24 public meetings and events seeking input on The EPIC indoor/outdoor water park and health, wellness, recreation center and library. The public can still be a part of the design process by submitting ideas online at jointheepic.com. The concept design process is underway along with a review of the overall park master plan. Design is expected to be completed within one year, with construction beginning in the fall of 2015. The facility is scheduled to be complete in May 2017.
