Community Activities Center (CAC) Presently, the CAC is 48,000 square feet. The expansion will increase the CAC by 60,000 square feet for a total of approximately 108,000 square feet. The CAC will become a multi-generational center by including classroom space, lounge areas, a kitchen and lunch room area for seniors with the lunch room area doubling as a Community Rooms/Event Hall. The CAC will also boast an Indoor Children’s Playground. Indoor Aquatics will be included in the expansion and will include zero depth entry, lap lanes for fitness, current channel, children’s water play features, birthday party rooms, slides, and family changing rooms. The expansion includes a vastly expanded fitness room, dedicated group exercise rooms, and fitness assessment rooms. A dedicated on-site child care room for people participating at the facility in programs or as members will also be included.
