“Let your elected officials know where you stand”

The City of Crossville has announced it is looking for public feedback on the proposed $39.568 million indoor recreation center (center) planned for North Main Street in Crossville. “Let your elected officials know where you stand,” announced the chamber in an email.

The email comes on the heels of the center making its online debut at CrossvilleRecreationCenter.com.

According to the site and the email, rec center plans include:

  • a gymnasium
  • a chld care center
  • fitness area
  • an indoor pool
  • and more

“The Crossville Recreation Center will be a public private partnership with the YMCA providing a place for young families to senior citizens the opportunity to improve their health, learn new skills, and create a support system with others to contribute to a stronger community,” according to the release.

Crossville Mayor E.J. Crawford said the center would be a great investment for both the city and the entirety of Cumberland County.

“I believe this Recreation Center will be a good thing because it will become a focal point for our community,” said Crawford. “The City Council and I are always looking for ways to create amenities while offering a better value for our community. This fills a need we have in the city. It will provide additional opportunities downtown which is important because younger professionals prefer downtown housing with more quality-of-life amenities and that is a major factor for them when they decided where they will live. The city is creating a public-private partnership which will balance fiscal responsibility and investment for a project of this scale. it will be a game changer to improve the quality of life for residents of Crossville.”

Murfreesboro PR firm E. Allen Brandon has been retained by the city to promote the center, and according to reports, construction of the center should take 18-20 months.
