harward rec center NAMPA RECREATION CENTER RENAMED HARWARD RECREATION CENTER

On Tuesday, September 7, the Nampa City Council unanimously approved the renaming of the Nampa Recreation Center to the Harward Recreation Center to honor former City of Nampa Finance Director Ken Harward. The Nampa City Council received more than 25 letters from community members in support of the name change. In the early 1970s, Ken Harward, was appointed to the position of Nampa Finance Director by then Mayor Ernie Starr. Harward worked for the City of Nampa for approximately 24 years and, during Mr. Harward’s time with City of Nampa, he is credited with leading the efforts that resulted in the construction of Nampa City Hall, the Nampa Civic Center, Nampa Recreation Center and Senior Center, Ford Idaho Center and Centennial and Ridgecrest golf courses. In addition, Harward organized efforts that brought pressurized irrigation to Nampa and influenced the expansion of the wastewater treatment plant, bringing it to modern standards. In 1998 Harward left the City of Nampa to work as the Executive Director of the Association of Idaho Cities where he later retired in 2014.
