Auburn, Ala. - The Frank Brown Recreation Center will close to the public beginning Monday, Nov. 26 - Friday, Jan. 4, 2013. The closure is necessary due to construction related to remodeling of the current facility. All classes and practices scheduled at the facility for the month of December have been relocated or rescheduled. Class participants should have received notice from their instructors regarding arrangements.
In January 2012, Auburn voters approved a package of public improvement projects as part of the Special Five Mill Tax Referendum. The project includes Phase II of reconstruction at the Frank Brown Recreation Center, allowing for additional classroom space, a conference room for meetings and seminars, facade improvements, a new racquetball court, and parking improvements. This project is being coordinated in conjunction with the ongoing construction of a new facility for senior citizens currently being constructed on the campus of the Frank Brown Recreation Center and the Jan Dempsey Community Arts Center. The new 8,454 square foot facility will allow for expanded senior programming as well as administrative offices for Parks and Recreation. The project also calls for reconfigured traffic and parking to allow cars to enter the campus from Perry Street, away from Opelika Road. Construction on both projects is expected to be complete in 2013.
