Feasibility Study

The Carbon Valley Parks and Recreation District finalized a feasibility study in late 2019 regarding the growth of the District’s services and programs. Community members had multiple opportunities to give feedback about their recreation wants and needs via statistically valid mail surveys, online surveys, open houses, community stakeholder meetings, and intercept events. 

Data gathered from the survey revealed the top three wants of community members are:

  • Outdoor pool
  • Additional recreation center
  • Athletic fields

The study also indicates the desired location for possible expansion (new build) is at Central Park in Firestone next to the library.

A group of community members have been utilizing the survey data to design concepts with consulting firm Barker Rinker Seacat to help develop what future facilities could look like. The District will be conducting large community outreach efforts to educate the public about the possibility and options for future development.
